The BALATORIUM project, part of the VEB2023 programme, is a complex cultural event and an awareness-raising science communication project. Its aim is to present the key ecological challenges, processes and key concepts related to Lake Balaton and its region through unique cultural programmes and additional content that are specifically reflective of the region, widely accessible and experiential.
The second season of BALATORIUM A.I.R. will be organized in the spring of 2023, in collaboration with the Balaton Uplands National Park Directorate. The Balaton Uplands National Park, protected in 1997, stretches along the northern shore of Lake Balaton in a 1-15 km wide strip (covering an area of 57,000 hectares) and includes 6 formerly protected areas: Kis-Balaton, the Keszthely Mountains, the Tapolca Basin, the Kál Basin, the Pécsely Basin and the Tihany Peninsula. By its establishment a long-standing dream of Hungarian nature conservation has come to life by linking areas that had long been separately protected, resulting in a protected ecological system covering the whole of the Balaton Uplands and Kis-Balaton. The main activities of the Balaton-felvidéki National Park Directorate include nature conservation, landscape protection, nature management, raising awareness and ecotourism.
