Budapest-Balaton Bike Path Completed
A stretch of the Budapest-Balaton (BUBA) cycle path, between Székesfehervar and Balatonakarattya, was inaugurated on Friday, completing the route between the capital and the "Hungarian sea", according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Máriusz Révész, state secretary for an active Hungary, noted that the first stretch of the BUBA cycle path, between the capital and Etyek, was completed in June, and the second stretch, between Etyek and Lake Velence, was finished in July.
BUBA is part of the EuroVelo 14 cycle path which runs between Lake Constance and Debrecen.
Hungary's government has spent an annual HUF 10 billion-12 bln, on top of European Union funding, on cycle path developments since 2018, government spokesperson Alexandra Szentkirályi said, pointing to the positive impact of such investments on the entire tourism sector.
BUBA is 108km long. The stretch inaugurated on Friday is a little over 27 km.
