Lake Tisza is the second largest lake in Hungary after the Lake Balaton. It is an artificial water reservoir, built as a part of the flood control program of the Tisza River in 1973.Lake Tisza map

The lake offers a huge choice of recreation options, and untouched nature. It's visited mostly by families with children, hikers, nature enthusiasts, hunters and fishermen, as well as lovers of water sports: the Lake Tisza is the only place in Hungary where motorized water vehicles, such as jet skis, may be used legally.

The dam surrounding the lake provides an excellent opportunity to explore the area by bicycle. Amazing landscape, tiny villages and hospitable locals make a visit to the Lake Tisza an unforgettable holiday.
