Siófok is one of the most important touristic spot of Lake Balaton. It's water-tower was always a symbol of the town. Once it was a water supply tower, than it became a look-out tower and restaurant, but then it was closed for years. Now that the tower became 100 years old, this was the perfect time to make the great step. The tower and its surroundings have been totally renewed. The tower got new floodlights, a new Tourinform Office on the ground level, and a new café bar on the top, with amazing panorama.
Cars can't drive in the square any more, it became a promenade covered with new stones. There's also a new statue of Count István Széchenyi, who connected to this area and to the town in many ways.
The third great development is the new Sió Pláza (mall) shopping and entertaining centre.
On the weekend of 21-24 of June citizens of Siófok celebrating the tower's birthday with concerts and programmes. The event is free and they welcome everybody!
