Xploring Hungary Video: Lake Tisza
Lake Tisza, also known as Kisköre Reservoir, is the largest artificial lake in Hungary.

Following the reservoir's completion, Hungarians began to flock to the site for holidays, since it compared favorably with the crowded and expensive Lake Balaton, the traditional holiday site.

As a result, tourist infrastructure has been developed on the reservoir—renamed Lake Tisza—and became an official tourism destination.

The lake (or reservoir) has a perfect ecology with a diversity of birds, plants, and animals.
