Balatonalmádi is actually a large town that was once three separate villages -- Balatonalmádi, Káptalanfüred, and Vörösberény -- all clustered on the northern shore of Lake Balaton. Where the center of town sits today was once a large vineyard. When the vineyards died off at the start of the 20th century, the landowners decided to build rental homes to make the area a vacation destination for the middle class. After over 100 years, it is still one of the more popular resort towns on Lake Balaton. There are beaches close to the center of town which offer various water sporting activites, and there is also a state-of-the-art marina for those wanting to enjoy a day (or more) on the water. Points of interest include the walled Reformed Church of Vörösberény, a Calvinist church dating from the 18th century.
