Lake Naplás (Hungarian: Naplás-tó, officially called Szilas-pataki flood control reservoir) is the largest lake of Budapest. The lake is artificial, surrounded by the second largest natural reserve of Budapest, including a moorland and a forest. Rare flora and fauna could be found here, therefore it has been a protected since 1997. It is the natural habitat of the European pond turtle. The lake itself is a fishing lake, but there are hiking and biking trails around it. It can be reached from the city by car or bike, or by the nearby public transportation.[1]
