Discover The North and East Hungary

The north and east of the country, which are less visited than Transdanubia, allow you to discover century old traditions and beautiful typically Hungarian landscapes: wine-producing hills (Tokay wine), vast terrain (Hortobagny), forests, sunny plateaus (Bükk Mounts), relief, which is constantly changing its appearance and which is punctuated with rivers, streams and small Medieval villages. A perfect illustration of the inestimable richness of this region is the village of Hollokö, (homeland of the Palóc ethnic group, located at the heart of a nature reserve) it is the first village to be declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco (1987). Basically, you will need a few days to visit the numerous splendours of the region which include: monuments in the city of Eger, the capital of Baroque art (the Castle Fort, Liceum Insitute, the Basilica, the Old Market Square), the city of Miskolc, the Protestant temple of Mont Avas, the city of Szerencs (at the entrance to the Zemplén Mountains).
