{{ event.description }}

Vonyarcvashegy is a resort village in the West Balaton region.

Understand

The settlement was created when the former Vonyarc and Vashegy settlements were united in 1850. At that time, the inhabitants dealt primarily with viticulture and fishing. The later cultivated local bathing life was based upon the activity of a bathing association founded in 1930.
