NORTH EAST HUNGARY
Back to Map
At 1014 meters, Kekesteto is the highest point in Hungary. One can look down over the forests and valleys below, down towards the plains of the South. Here lies some of the best wine producing slopes in the country, with the famous desert Tokaj and Egri Bikaver (Bulls Blood) vines among the many.
Tourist opportunities abound, with fishing, rambling, and caving in some of Europes largest stalagtite caves. The myriad of cultures that have settled in the hills have brought with them their own unique arts and crafts, so wood carving, silk ribbons, embroidery, 'kerchiefs, porcelain, and local culinary delights are specialities.
The area abounds with thermal spas and religious monuments and churches, and the cities and villages each hold activities and festivals to celebrate the passing of time and cultures. Here you will find mines, mining museums, as well as fossil parks and great walking and cycling opportunities.
Debrecen, the second largest city and Miscolc the third most populous city in Hungary, are seats of learning and culture with large universities, libraryies and museums. There are many listed buildings, monuments, and fine churches.
To the East is the Northern Great Plain, abounding with thermal spas each with its' own unique mineral content, for treating specific and general health disorders, and villages containing hidden 'treasures'
