Széchenyi-Era Boat Revived In Balaton, Hungary
Passenger boat Kisfaludy, a modernised replica of the steamboat launched in 1846 by Count István Széchenyi, was set afloat on Lake Balaton at Siófok on the weekend. The boat can host 100 guests and is available for events.

The replica was produced by Mahart Tiszayacht, part of the KÉSZ group, assembling the main body in Szeged and transferring it to Lake Balaton by road.
