During the 1960s and 70s, Lake Balaton, the biggest lake in Central Europe, was a major tourist destination for working-class Hungarians and people from the Eastern Bloc. It also served as a meeting point for Eastern and Western Germans, who were separated by the Berlin Wall until 1989, but could still travel and meet here.
