In our continuing series of great Balaton lookout points, we focus on an iconic landmark at Balatonboglár: the Gömbkilátó, created during an Expo in 1958. This floodlit structure has an amazing view of the lake and its surroundings.
True, the autumn Balaton is most beautiful on sunny days, but you don't have to sit around dejected on the shore if its raining. There are plenty of indoor spas, museums and restaurants and wineries open in the autumn for you to visit. This time, we looked around from Szárszó to Balatonlelle, with a bit of detour to Polány and Igal.
The towns of Balatonlelle and Balatonboglár on Lake Balaton’s south shore share a long history. At one point, in 1978, they were even merged under the name of Boglárlelle. Here’s a look at their symbiosis through archive photographs.
Roping twisted by the wind, rocking waves, and inviting armchairs and sofas welcome you to the marina restaurants of Lake Balaton that are mostly open the public as well as to sailors. The offers range wide: there are set lunch menus, hamburgers or you can opt for the sous vide duck breast that is crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. In the summer, we tested seven restaurants (both from the north and the south shoe) where prices are reasonable but you still feel as if you were in Monte Carlo.
We already started to round up the farmers' markets around Lake Balaton once, but there were so many we had to leave some out. They are here now: 7 venues, from the gap-filling fish market to the eco-trend followers, where you can purchase something to put onto the plate, into the pan or the hand of your kid. Pt. 2 might still not be the end of the list.
