  • The history of Siófok - Siofok in present days: The surroundings of Siófok was inhabited even in the neolithic period and later, in Roman times, too. A new chapter started with the Roman occupation in the history of Trans-Danubia. In order to defend the southern military roads, establishing the Province of Pannonia, towns and roads became vitally essential. Roman conquest got to the surroundings of our present town of Siófok in the 1st century A.D. and this is the region where the road from Sopianae (Pécs) lead across Tricciana (Ságvár) to Arrabona (Gyor). According to the notes made by Sectus Aurelius Victor in the turn of the 3rd-4th century Emperor Galerius had a dike built and made some forests cleared in order to drain the moor-land of "Lacus Pelso" -it is the Latin name for Balaton- in 292 A.D. He named the whole region after his wife, Valeria. One can read in the deed of endowment of Tihany dated 1055, after the Hungarian conquest, i.e. in the first Hungarian sporadic literary remains of the language, the following sentence: ..."Rivulus namque, qui dicitur Fok fluens".... It means: "The small brook called Fok also springs from the lake mentioned above and is located where people can go across an ancient bridge and a ford, too...." That is to say Fok is not mentioned as a village in the original deed of endowment despite the fact that the word "river" refers to the village. After the devastations caused by the Mongols Fok was reconstructed and a parish was also established there. Its church was consecrated to Peter and Paul. Until the Turkish conquest it was the district seat of the archdeacon. In 1541 the Turkish invadors kept moving forward and after having seized Szigetvár they reached Lake Balaton. In 1552 Veszprém was also occupied and Fok along with its surroundings got also taken up. Siófok was turned into a naval port and a fortification was erected here. Besides the commandant of town two "aghas of the navy" were also resided here. The Turkish fortification was established near the present hospital on the "Hill of Granarium". The country-side was liberated from the Turkish yoke in 1688. Fok got into the possession of the collegiate church who installed settlers there and in 1693 had a wooden church built for the inhabitants. In 1705 Ferenc Rákóczi II donated the village of Fok a seal serving today as a basis for the present coat of arm. In 1709, after Bottyán's death the "labanc" armies (nickname of pro-Austrian soldiers during the 18th century Hungarian wars of independence) managed to capture the settlement. In 1717, in a contract concluded with the collegiate church of Veszprém, the inhabitants of Fok managed to get the lease-holder status. The parish church of Baroque style consacrated to the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin was erected in 1736. In the course of the 18th century before the blotting paper came into general use, the fine sand of the shore at Siófok had been used as writing-sand. Piling up fine quicksand was the occupation of young girls and wives of Siófok. The settlement started to develop as of the years of the 1800s. The Transylvania-Adria speed mail coach reached Siófok as of 1810. (Note: since 1867 an independent post-office administration and since 1946 a state post-office has been operating at Siófok). The 19th century was an important period in the regulation of water-ways. In 1810 Joseph, the palatine of Hungary appointed Joseph Beszédes to accomplish the works of regulating the water-ways of Sárvíz. The works of Sió Water-system completed between 1810-1825 on the southern shore of Lake Balaton are as follows: 1. The mill of Fok was pulled down (It burnt down in 1812 and it was not restored any more.) 2. Sió bed was cleaned out. 3. The mills were adjusted. 4. the water-level of Lake Balaton fell one metre thus 51.000 acres of dry land were gained. 5. By regulating Sió brook 6.000 acres of dry land were gained. The epidemy of cholera hit the settlement in 1831. In 1842 the Association for the Regulation of the Balaton Water was established which buyed and pulled down the mill and dam of Kiliti, being the biggest obstacles to water regulation. By the falling water level another 6.000 acres were gained. In the life of the settlement an important change was brought by the foundation of the Steamboating Incorporation of Balaton under the life presidence of Earl Széchenyi in compliance with the rules of association made by Lajos Kossuth in 1846. The paddle-steamer named Kisfaludy was launched on water on September 21. In 1858 started the construction of the railway between Buda and Nagykanizsa which was opened to the public in 1861. The railway embankment having started in 1858 also contributed to the stabilization of the southern shore as filling up the banks of the railway formed a real dam against the spring inundations. (104.096 m A.F. It is the "0" point of Siófok water measure even today.) At Siófok the railway station got finished in 1863 and by 1864 the harbour defended by breakwaters was also completed. The year of 1863 is considered to be the year of birth of Siófok as a holiday resort. The year of 1865 is a remarkable anniversary in the history of Siófok as the settlement of not more than 200 houses and 1500 inhabitants was permitted to make country market thus it got the rank of market-town. In 1866 was published the first announcement titled "Siófok, Bathing Resort of Balaton" in Zala-Somogy Gazette. The Bathing-house titled "Hungarian Sea" was constructed in 1878 according to the plans of Neuschlass constructing company, in the Swiss style. The collegiate church of Veszprém started dividing the "estates of ebbing" into lots. That is how the present holiday resort started developing. It marks the fascinating and inspiring beauty of the landscape that the majority of the first villa-owners were painters. In 1888 it was Gábor Baross who granted a state loan to the reorganization of the Steamboating Incorporation of Balaton. The concern called Siófok, Resort on Balaton established in April, 1891, bought up the bathing licence from the collegiate church as well as a 60-acre moorland necessary for constructing buildings and parks. Some major hotels were constructed at that time: Sió and Hullám and later the Central Hotel. The new resort was opened with a gala ceremony on July 18, 1893. It was on that occasion that the Minister of Inner Affairs gave permission to use the name of "spa". Part of this soothing atmosphere was the theatre life of Siófok starting in 1875 that attracted great personalities of the time. The hyppodrome was constructed in 1900 with its grand-stands for 1500 people and the targets of the Balaton cross-swimming race were also set here. The swimming and tennis concours held each year also added to the richness of the summer events at Siófok. Due to its busy resort life, Siófok became a popular spa for artists, actors and the upper-middle class of Budapest. At the end of the World War II the settlement was badly damaged. The front-line lasting here for two months destroyed or damaged a number of buildings, villas, hotels, family houses, the ship-yard. By destroying the road and railway bridge it made the reconstruction works extremely difficult. After 1948 the settlement started to develop in another direction. Siófok became the centre for holidays organized by companies and trade unions. Its reconstructed summer houses, hotels and the new canalization, sewage system the new water works have made the site the biggest and most important resort receiving crowds of people every summer. Since 1950 the settlement has been belonging to Somogy County and has become a seat of district rank. It was in 1955 when the cult of Imre Kálmán started. the Tourism Office placed a memorial tablet on the house of the district's great composer. Tourism started to develop in 1958 since when foreigners have been returning. In 1962 started the construction of the hotel line and by the mid-sixties the pride of "Silver Coast", the Hotel for International Journalists was completed too. Services meeting with the demands of the site have also been organized. On December 29, 1968, Ferenc Jankó, president of the town committee took over the deed of town rank set forth in the decision No. 20/1968 NET by the Presidential Council. The 400-bed hospital was inaugurated. The education started developing. The 70s were the years of rapid development. The construction of the infrastructure of town was almost finished. The Cultural Centre and the library was opened to the public in 1976. At the beginning of the 80s the town started to build up its international relationships and to improve its connections with fraternal towns. In 1988 the local paper "Siófok News" was established. New bridges were built across Sió for the traffic. In 1989 Sió TV started to transmit its programmes. This institute is the first local television with open transmission. The "Society for Preserving and Decorating the Town of Siófok" was given the Water Tower, symbol of town for three years on the ground-floor of which an exhibition has been installed. As a result of the local elections in 1990, an 18-member board of representatives governed the town. The school network has been enlarged. Besides the basic requirements, education is also supported: in addition to the 8 kinder-gardens, 4 elementary schools, 3 secondary schools and the music school in 1996 the local faculty of tourism economy of the College János Kodolányi was launched here. Today Siófok is one of the most important tourist centre, as it is said: "Siófok is the capital of Lake Balaton." It has been made capital by its public transport of high level and its shallow shore offering safe bathing to holiday-makers. Besides the mild water of the lake visitors coming here may enjoy the organized programmes and the Hungarian hospitality as well. The town itself is an open-air exhibition with its sculptures and monuments on public squares. (Among others one of the greatest Hungarian contemporary sculptor, Imre Varga who was born at Siófok, exhibited his sculpture of Imre Kálmán, titled "Vanishing Time". In addition to the historic buildings,some modern churches offer an exciting sight by their queer architecture. Due to the development in recent years the town has become a site of flowers and parks. An outstanding park in town is the Millenium Park in front of the railway station. The town 106 kms far from Budapest can be easily reached by rail, road or air from every direction.

  • Siofok - sailing at Lake Balaton: Sailing is the art of controlling a boat with large (usually fabric) foils called sails. By changing the rigging, rudder, and sometimes the keel or centre board, a sailor manages the force of the wind on the sails in order to change the direction and speed of a boat. Mastery of the skill requires experience in varying wind and sea conditions, as well as knowledge concerning sailboats themselves. Lake Balaton, in the Transdanubian region of Hungary, is the largest lake in Central Europe[1], and one of its foremost tourist destinations. As Hungary is landlocked, it is often affectionately called the "Hungarian Sea". The Zala River provides the largest inflow of water to the lake, and the canalized Sió is the only outflow.
