Balatonboglar, Hungary, is situated in the west of the country, in the county of Somogy, on the southern shore of Lake Balaton. It is known as the "City of Wine," as it is the professional center of wine production in the region; the top reason tourists come here from all over the world is to do some wine tasting in one of the atmospheric wine cellars in the nice hilly countryside that surrounds the town. The most typical products available here are full-bodied white wines, but the red Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are becoming increasingly popular with producers as well. If you are planning to do some tasting, it's best to make an appointment already a few days in advance. The ticket normally includes a tour around the winery, the tasting of a variety of wines, and the opportunity to purchase the products of the house.
However, there is a second reason for the popularity of the town with travelers -- it functions as a resort town with easy access to the many beaches around Lake Balaton and with spas where one can enjoy the healing properties of the thermal water that comes to the surface in the area. The history of medicinal bathing goes back to the early twentieth century, when the first bathing association was established in Balatonboglar and it was registered as a medicinal bathing location.
Moreover, if you are in the area and would like to do some exploring, you can organise an excursion to the Xantus lookout tower to enjoy the panorama over the city or enjoy a walk along the shore of the lake. Good news for travelers on a budget is that Balatonboglar offers an option for a budget hostel in Balatonboglar, Hungary. In an impressive mansion located only a stone's throw from the lake, you can feel the summer vibes all year round; with a party atmosphere and a sauna and hot tub available for the hostel guests, you are guaranteed to enjoy your stay here. However, an equally attractive option is to base yourself in Siófok, where you will be spoilt with the choice of hostels, and organise a day trip to Balatonboglar.
