Visitors can spend blissful hours on the lakeshore of Vyškovce. Although there are opportunities for line fishing the possession of a fishing license is absolutely necessary. Before arriving at the lake we recommend you to visit the agricultural park of Oom Laci where different farming machines and livestock can be seen.
Various leisure time activities await for visitors at the tiny lake (“ Paloc Balaton”) of Visk which is one of the most popular watering places in the area and it can be visited in every season. Visitors can take a nice walk around the lake or when it is frozen ice skating is also possible but only at your own risk. The lake is a perfect place for swimming and sunbathing when summer has arrived. Visitors are allowed to swim in the lake, though the sudden alternation of the lake bottom requires great caution. There are possibilities to feed the curious swans which is great fun.
