    Hell on Earth

    by caribou_ire Written Feb 18, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    yes, that IS a satellite dish

    Favorite thing: Listen to me, please. Whatever you do, where-ever you go, how-ever you feel just stay away from Síofok.
    It is a nightmarish place for any traveller and the less time spent there, the better.
    Siofok is full drunk Hungarian and Austrian muppets getting more and more beligerant as the night progresses. I was unfortunate enough to have to spend the night in a ridiculously over-priced campsite surrounded by crap music being played at an astonishing level. Throughout the night i was kept awake by the frequent cries of surprise from Hungarian drinkers returning to their abodes and accidently tripping over our tent strings.
    It was not a pleasant experience.
    Let me re-state; You do not want to visit Síofok, the land of spastics.

    Train station Si��fok

    Favorite thing: Architectural attraction in Siófok is the train station.

    The building was built in 1904. Rail link between the Buddha and Nagykanizso exists already since 1861, since 1863, the train stops in Siófok.

    It is located in center and next to the nice Millennium park.

    History of Siófok

    by grayfo Written Mar 8, 2014
    Map showing Lake Balaton ��� 1789

    Favorite thing: The earliest finds for Siófok date from the Neolithic period, with later finds from the Copper and Bronze ages. The area really came to prominence with the Roman conquest in the 1st century and the need to defend the southern military roads, after establishing the Province of Pannonia, towns and roads in the area became vitally essential. The name of the village Fok appears among the tax-paying settlements first in 1137, while the compound word of Siófok has been known since 1790.

    In Balaton the water is pretty...

    by blos Written Aug 26, 2002

    Favorite thing: In Balaton the water is pretty warm, it was a joy to swim in compared to the freezing water in Ireland. I'm not sure about the water quality with so many resorts around, but as they say ignorance is bliss :o)

    Fondest memory: Swimming

    Memorial of WWI

    by kaloz Written Feb 25, 2003
    War Memorial

    Favorite thing: Please click to enlarge, as my pictures are in a square format. I thought this a fitting memorial to the veterans of WWI. Instead of glorifying, it makes a statement about the absurdity of war, featuring a vulture to pick the bones of the dead.

    Water Tower

    Water Tower

    Favorite thing: The Water Tower is the most striking erection in Siofok. In the USA our water towers are generally very ugly. This one is modern but not ugly.

    Favorite thing: Siofok does not appear to be too prosperous judging from this photo of where the people live. Maybe it was just my mood that day that made me take this photo.
