An ancient story of how the Hill of Badacsony was created

Badacsony is a monadnock, rising abruptly from the surrounding plain, domineering the view of the northern shore of the Lake Balaton. It is an ancient volcanic hill.
The birth of the Badacsony Hill was attributed to playing giants: according to the legend, they were playing with cubes, cones and hills, then suddenly they needed to leave so they did not put away their toys, therefore they have been lying scattered ever since.
