The Translators House is situated 125 kilometers south of Budapest on the northern shore of Lake Balaton. Balatonfüred is on the northern bank of the Balaton, surrounded by rolling hills and boasting a Mediterranean climate. The town was declared a spa in the 18th century because of its effervescent healing springs, making it a meeting place for progressive politicians, artists and the aristocracy from the early 19th century into the thirties.
