How to get to Szolad

Address: 8625 Szólád, Kossuth Lajos utca 23. Faluház (Village Hall)

By car

Szólád is located along the M7 motorway, connecting Budapest with Zagreb. Szólád is next to Lake Balaton, the nearest larger city by this lake is called „Siófok”.

From North / West Europe the easiest (although not the shortest) way to reach M7 motorway is on the M1 Vienna/Bratislava – Budapest motorway. Then change to the M0 ring-road before Budapest (direction Zagreb) and then to M7. From South / East Europe one option is to take a motorway to Budapest, change to the M0 ring-road and then to M7. You can also decide to drive on more direct country roads – in this case please use a map or GPS… Please note that on Hungarian motorways you need to pay a toll. You can also purchase them on-line here: http://www.hungary-vignette.eu/

Leave the M7 motorway at the „130km” exit and follow the road to Szólád.
