Lake Balaton I. - Siofok

Lake Balaton (sometimes called the Hungarian sea) is the largest lake in Central Europe. The peak season extends from June until the end of August. It's very enjoyable to bath in the lake, since the average water temperature in summer is about 25 °C (77 °F). I collected the most beautiful, most interesting and most exciting towns which should be visited at Lake Balaton.

1. Siofok - For young people and partyfaces

Siofok is the nightlife capital of Lake Balaton. There are bars, pizzerias, pubs, and dozens of discos and nightclubs in the city. You can dance, drink, karaoke, flirt, listen to live music, anything you want. At the same time, I don't recommend anyone to go alone to a disco in Siofok (and generally, in Hungary.)

But Siofok is much more than just discos and bars. It is not only the nightlife capital of Lake Balaton, it is, to my mind, the capital of the lake. In addition, it has the best beach of Lake Balaton with sand, and opportunities to play beach voleyball, water football, badminton, to hire paddle boats, sailboats, kayak, etc. In my opinion, Siofok can't be missed by anyone.
