Balatonboglár, in Hungary, is a resort town situated on the south shore of Lake Balaton. It is the professional centre of the Balatonboglár Wine Region, and is often called the "town of grapes and wine."

The town was founded geographically around three buttes. One of these hills is called the “Cemetery Hill” where the most important cultural-historical heritages of the region are located: a medieval church ruin as well as two neo-gothic chapels: the Blue Chapel and the Red Chapel.

The Chapels served originally as burial places for two renowned, noble families. During the 70s it was a famous meeting point for underground artist which was later forbidden by the communist government.


Nowadays the whole area is already renewed and high quality exhibitions are taking place here during the summer season.

My parents live in this beautiful small town. During my last visit this summer I also took my photography gear with and succeed to take some wonderful shots daytime and during the night. It was an amazing experience accompanied by two loud forest owls as well as the smell of the blooming lavender...
