Sukoró is a holiday resort situated at the northern coast of Lake Velencei and at the south foot of Velencei Hills, in picturesque environment. It is often referred to as the “Tihany” of Lake Velencei, an unpolished diamond. The victorious battle at Pákozd-Sukoró in the War of Independence of 1848 established the reputation of the village. The war council before the battle was held in the protected Calvinist Church of Sukoró, where memories are still preserved. The settlement has a beautiful panorama; the protected Calvinist Church and the natural resources near the national tourist route (such as Ingóko – Wobbling Stone, Olasz-kofejto – Italian Rock Mine, Likas-ko – Hollow Stone, Angelika-forrás – Angelika Spring, Éva-forrás – Éva Spring, and the Pákozd-Sukoró Arboretum) cannot be realistically described, you must see them for yourselves. Balloon-Sport Campsite and the International kayak and canoe course are also situated within the official boundaries of Sukoró. Besides those ten thousand tourists who chose Sukoró as a destination there are large numbers of visitors in transit, since those seeking relaxation, bathing, water sports, or hunting would enjoy themselves equally. In winter sledge riders and skaters arrive, looking for fresh air and quietness. Foreigners – dominantly German and Dutch visitors – have also developed a taste for the settlement in the past years. The events of the summer festival “Sukoró Summer” offer cultural curiosities throughout the season, including highstandard exhibitions in the Cultural Cen-tre, organ and other concerts in the protected Calvinist Church or in the Catholic Church where the organ has been refurbished recently. Those who look for good food and drinks might taste the famous wines of Velencei Hills in the cellars of Sukoró or can rely on the high llevel services of Boglya Csárda (Boglya Inn) or Gémeskút Restaurant. The location of Sukoró in the country is also an attractive feature for visitors, since it is only 48 km’s from Budapest, 14 km’s from Székesfehérvár and 50 km’s from Lake Balaton (Siófok) on the M7 motorway.
