5 Facts You May Not Know About Siófok

For most of the people, Budapest is the first thing that comes to their mind when they think about Hungary. This country is beautiful, and it has many other beautiful cities.

Now, let’s take a look at Siófok.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Siófok is a beautiful port- and holiday town next to Lake Balaton in Somogy County. Even though its population is about 25,000, it is the biggest city on the shore. An interesting fact about it is that Balatonkiliti and Balatonújhely are attached to it. It was used to be called Fok (degree in English) but got the prefix ‘Sió’ in 1901 because of the SióCanal next to it. Siófok existed even at the Roman Times.

WHAT TO SEE

Siófok is a beautiful city; this is why visitors should take a nice walk here. One of the latest attractions is the Ferris Wheel. It is a seasonal program since visitors can enjoy it only during the summer season. However, it is good to know that the minimum height is 140 cm for all of the visitors.

For those who like museums, the Mineral Museum could be an excellent choice. It is a nice programme not only for children but also for adults since the exhibition is very informative.

WATER ACTIVITIES

There is a wide range of water activities in this city. First of all, the most popular way to enjoy the water is Lake Balaton. There are not only beaches on the shore, but one can also find adventure here, too. Bebo Aquapark is a perfect example for that because everyone, no matter how old they are, will find the most exciting activities for themselves. There are trampolines, “monkey cages”, obstacle courses, and many more. Safety is very important for the park, therefore everyone is safe while having fun here.

After bathing, you can even go on a boat trip that can be a refreshing experience due to the wind blowing on the open water. If you like paddle boating, we can assure you that there are many places to rent one. Furthermore, a romantic date idea could also be row boating during the sunset. If you are not keen on bathing in the lake, we have good news for you because there is also a Thermal Bath in Siófok. Its name is Galerius Bath and Wellness Centre that offers different kinds of activities for all ages. There are multiple pools, some slides, massage, and hot water.

ADVENTURE
