The church chorus in Kapolcs was a wonderful discovery.... The underwater lake in nearby Tapolca was a memorable and mysterious place for learning for my awed children. We will escape again to this cottage...only 2.5 hours from Budapest. Oh the neighbors dog was a welcome treat too, for my pet starved children.
