Two healthy liquids at one place, Balatonfüred

Of course wine is one of them and the other one is the so called “sour” water, medicinal (mineral) water which made Balatonfüred very popular back in the days.

Welcome to the architecture inside nature pure – Ta Prohm

Published by under Cambodia

Ta Prohm is a Buddhist monastery dedicated to the “ancestor Brahma” and dates back to the middle of the XII. century and beginning of the XIII. century.

Published by under Hungarian Wine
