BUD Taxi: Budapest - Lake Balaton, Zamárdi. Sound Festival

Lake Balaton is a freshwater lake in the Transdanubian region of Hungary. It is the largest lake in Central Europe, and one of its foremost tourist destinations. As Hungary is landlocked (its coastline was severed after World War I), Lake Balaton is often affectionately called the "Hungarian Sea".

The average depth of the lake is 3-4 m, the water is the deepest between the Siófok basins at the so-called Tihany well with 11.5 m depth. The length is 77 km between Keszthely and Balatonakarattya, its width varies between 3 and 14 km, the closest is between Tihany and Szántód where the only ferry service on the lake operates during summer.

Once volcanic hills of the Badacsony reflect in the smooth water surface on the northern shore while on the south side of the lake you'll find sandy beaches for bathing and sunbathing. The shallow water along the southern shore warms rather quickly during summer reaching around 26-28 °C, which makes bathing and swimming pleasant. The high tourist season extends from June until the end of August. The lake is almost completely surrounded by separated bike lanes to facilitate bicycle tourism.

Balaton Sound Festival | 5-9 JULY 2017:

The major resorts around the lake are Siófok, Keszthely, and Balatonfüred. Siófok is known often as the "Party Capital of Hungary", which attracts many young partygoers in summer due to its numerous large clubs. Zamárdi, a resort town on the southern shore, is the site of Balaton Sound, a major electronic music festival since 2007. The 2012 festival won the European Festivals Award in the category Best Medium-Sized European Festival. The Balaton Sound is primarily an electronic music festival.
