is not a tourist destination. It is barely
visited – it’s just an old village on a lake. Along the lake shore, rickety
boardwalks lead out over the lake to old fishing cottages that stand on stilts.
It’s not the nicest location, but I think there’s something enchanting about
the photographs, and there is certainly something artsy about the boardwalks
and cottages on the misty water. Hungary
Bokod is a lake about 80 kilometers west of
, the capital city of Budapest . It was hard to find information on Bokod.
There was a website in Hungarian, but unfortunately I am not fluent in
Hungarian, and google translate was not very helpful… Hungary
I’m not sure if the lake houses are inhabited – one website reported that they were abandoned but I’m not sure if it was a reliable source. If it is abandoned, I’m not sure if the boardwalks are even safe to walk on. I was disappointed when I realized this, because I saw the picture first and thought the lake houses seemed like a really cool place to stay.
What to eat? No classy restaurants here guys, this one's a picnic lunch. I'm sure there would be somewhere to eat in the village, but I wasn't able to find any online information.
I think Bokod certainly has potential though – if someone were to restore it and make the fishing houses into cottages for rent, it would be a lovely and very cool place to stay. What do you think?
