Róza Szegedy House and Rose Rock


The Róza Szegedy House is on Kisfaludy utca, reached by turning right from Római utca. The walk is a reasonably steep 2.5km through the vineyards, or an easy ride in an open-top jeep taxi from Park utca – the main street by the lake. Róza Szegedy met her future husband, the poet Sándor Kisfaludy, here in 1795, and he wrote some of his most beautiful works from the house, which contains some of his work and their original furniture. Up a path a little further is Rose Rock (Rókzako), where it’s said that if a man and woman sit together with their backs facing Lake Balaton and think about each other, they will marry within a year.
