VEOL – A special place with a modern chapel

After leaving the car in the parking lot next to the cemetery, we reach the private church by a pleasant walk through the forest, and on the way stations and basalt signs help us find our way.

Badacsonytomaj Church is not visible from a distance and there is no panoramic view nearby, but it is still worth a visit

The modern-style basalt church was built ten years ago in a small space in the former Upper Colony area, according to plans by designer Tibor Janković, Ybl and Prima award-winning architect. Mining on the mountain stopped in the mid-1960s, and a small church was built from the stones of the demolished colony, the construction of which was initiated by local painter Erzsébet Kossuth Udvardi. The church altarpiece depicting King Istvan is his work. The building's entrance faces north, from its three narrow windows. Every year on August 20, when the sun is at its highest, light falls enough to illuminate the letter Saint Stephen carved into the floor. The church was consecrated on 23 August 2014 by Cardinal Peter Erdo, Archbishop of Esztergom-Budapest.

There is a lookout point on the top of the hill near the church, and a beautiful panoramic view opens from the south side, which is worth a hike.
