Herend is a small town in the western Hungary, near the lake of Balaton. It has a population of 3384 inhabitants (in 2015 census). The town is most famous for its long tradition of excellent porcelain manufacturing.
The history of the town goes back into Roman times, while in the middle ages a few villages occupied the area where the current town stands. After the Turkish occupation, the then-village was largely emptied, but the barren of Herend was repopulated between 1764 and 1847.
The Herend Porcelain Manufactory is a Hungarian manufacturing company, specializing in luxury hand painted and gilded porcelain. Founded in 1826, it is based in the town of Herend.
We watched a movie of 3D first. Then we are going to the studio to make a tour of the Herend porcelain manufacturing process.
Left the workshop, we are going into the Porcelain Museum.
After the Herend Porcelain Museum, we are leaving for the next destination Hévíz.
