On the hill
above Balatonboglár, in a peaceful environment, stood a ruined and desolate churchyard chapel. Stairs
lined with thuyas lead up to the chapel.
From the doorway there was a fine view over lake Balaton.




The churchyard chapel was built in an eclectic style by the Körmendy family in 1893. Since the village had no church until 1932, the chapel functioned as a consecrated catholic church. After the construction of the main church and the opening of the new cemetery the chapel lost its function and the churchyard became overgrown with brushwood. The chapel was execrated and the graves were vandalized by “hooligans”.
