Balatontourist, the new lessor of the nudist beach and camp site in Balatonberény on the south shore of Lake Balaton, is planning developments for the holiday season; interest in the nudist camp site has again been on the rise since last year.
Balatonberény was Central Europe's biggest nudist centre in the nineties, but the beach and camp site have become run down and lost their leading role in the region.
Balatonberény mayor László Horváth said the municipality rented out the 5.5-hectare beach and camp site last year for ten years to Balatontourist, a member of the SCD Group as the local council lacks the funds necessary for the developments.
The mayor said Balatontourist pays a rent of HUF 7 million per year, several times the amount the municipality generated as profit. Balatontourist has made commitments to carry out certain developments, of which it will be able to write off HUF 10 million from the rent. (MTI - Econews)
