Lake Tisza (Hungarian: Tisza-tó), also known as Kisköre Reservoir (Hungarian: Kiskörei-víztározó), is the largest artificial lake in Hungary. It is located at the south-eastern edge of Heves county, next to counties Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén, Hajdú-Bihar and Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok.
The lake is 27 km in length, with an average depth of 1.3 m and a maximum depth of 17 m; it contains 43 km² of small islands.
Following the reservoir’s completion, Hungarians began to flock to the site for holidays, since it compared favorably with the crowded and expensive Lake Balaton, the traditional holiday site. As a result, tourist infrastructure developed on the reservoir—renamed Lake Tisza—and the government has designated it an official tourism destination.
The lake (or reservoir) has a perfect ecology with a diversity of birds, plants, and animals. The Hortobágy National Park has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999.
