Kolònia 52 and the dragon legend of Szent György-hegy
Named after the chapel of St George that once stood at its foot, legends surround the mountain, including that of St George and the dragon that once lived in the mountain and watched over the villagers. Szent György-hegy is a characteristic elevation on the northern shore of Lake Balaton and is characterised by huge basalt columns 10-30 metres high. Around 3 to 4 million years ago, the bedrock was formed from Pannonian marine sediments, overlaid by layers of basalt and basalt tuff from volcanic eruptions.
Once a hill, the height of the mountain reveals its original surface. The vineyards around St George's Mountain belong to the Badacsony sub-region of the Balaton wine-growing region, as the fertile soil is particularly suitable for wine-growing.
