Baláca - Roman-Age Farm Estate and Ruins Garden

Discounts with Bakony & Balaton Card

If you like travelling back in time for great experiences, Balácapuszta is your place! The largest Roman-age farm estate in Transdanubia welcomes visitors near Veszprém, where Lake Balaton meets the Bakony Hills. With its objects and other evidence, the internationally acclaimed exhibition site is a collection of new knowledge and experiences, demonstrating a full part of life in the Roman times. The central building hosts a reception room and museum-pedagogy hall. You can see stunning pieces of the stone-carving heritage of Veszprém County in the lapidarium. In the parklike ruins garden there is a smaller garden where the various uses of Roman-age spices and herbs are demonstrated, thus intensifying the Mediterranean atmosphere of the place. A Roman-type sun-dial shows the passing of time in the middle of the garden. A former mausoleum resembling Italian tombstones can be found about 600 metres away from the centre of the farm estate. From here, if you find the right spot, you can see Lake Balaton if you face south and the slopes of the Bakony Hills if you turn your head to the north.
