As I promised yesterday that I try to improve my English knowledge with writing a blog every day or at least once a week, now i would like to tell something about my summer holiday. I live in Hungary and I very like my country. In my opinion it is very beautiful. There are lots of places which are worth visiting for instance the capital: Budapest, Lake Balaton, Hortobágy National Park etc. So this summer I visited to the Lake Balaton.
Lake Balaton is a freshwater in Hungary, actually it is the largest lake in Central Europe. The lake is known in Hungary as Balaton (nicknamed: Balcsi) and it is often called the "Hungarian Sea". During the summer holiday period awful lot of people visit the lake from hungary and different kind of foreign country. The major resorts around the lake are Siófok, Keszthely and Balatonfüred. Siófok is known as the "Party Capital of Hungary" which attracts many young party goers in summer due to its numerous large clubs. As a matter of fact Siófok is one of my favourite places in Hungary. The main tourist season takes from June to end of August, when the average water temperature is 25, which makes bathing and swimming possible.
So in this summer I went with my boyfriend to Lake Balaton. We had accomodation in a 3 stars hotel at Balatonkenese. Balatonkenese is a little town in Veszprém county, Hungary. We spent there 4 days which were beautiful. Virtually we did nothing just lay on the beach, and swam. Balaton is very nice there, the floor of Balaton is covered by sand, it wans't muddy or gritty.(I don't know how to say it in english :), I am thinking of that when you go into the water and you stand on something). When we were there the weather was hot and the water had pleasant temperature. We enjoyed the sunshine all day. It was perfect for us after the daily routine to spend our time with relaxing.
