Kántás Pension Tihany
Because of the beauty of the surrounding landscape and its historical value Tihany is a popular destination for tourists from all over the world. Ancient Tihany was founded in the Middle Age, when King Andrew I. founded a burial-place for the Royal Family in 1055 AD. He also ordered his subjects to build a Monastery over the burial-place, where he settled Benedictine monks. In the 18th Century the Abby was rebuilt in Baroque style and since then, as an ancient symbol the Abby watches over Tihany and the peninsula with its solicitous gaze.
In Tihany several grocery stores, gift shops, Museums, historical ruins and beautiful sights can be found. For those who enjoy outdoor activities we offer hiking, horse-riding, going for rides, tennis and anglers will definitely enjoy fishing in Tihany’s Inner Pond or in Lake Balaton. You can also relax on one of the beaches or take part in the organised bicycle tours around the Lake.
