Miskolc, the Diósgyőr Castle
This Gothic castle palace, which was built by Louis the Great in the 14th century stands at the foot of the Bükk Mountains, on a rocky hill protruding from the valley of the Szinva stream.
The Diósgyőr Castle is also called the castle of queens as it was owned by the wives of rulers for more than a hundred years, who received it as a gift and used it as a rural residence. The castle is now full of life again: authentic furnishings, costumed guides and historical games transport visitors back to the past.
Knightly tournaments, guided tours in authentic costumes, weapon demonstrations and archery. If you visit the Diósgyőr Castle there are countless activities to choose from.
The largest knight’s hall in Central Europe from the time of Louis the Great is located here.
