The Fátyol waterfall cascading from a height of 17 metres, Szikla spring, the famous Gloriett glade where once the houses of the village Szalajka stood and the Istállóskő cave: these are just a few of the sights that await you in Szilvásvárad and the Szalajka Valley.
There are no words to describe the most beautiful part of Hungary: a trip to the Szalajka Valley
The narrow-gauge railway leaves every hour from Fatelep station in the valley and runs on the steepest railway track without cogwheels in Hungary. The railway passes the Szalajka fish pond where, if you are lucky, you will see the fast trout swimming in the water. The line ends at the Gloriett glade: this is where you get off and take a short walk to the Szalajka spring. The place is an ideal spot for a picnic, but while you are here you should also try one of the mouth-watering local trout dishes. While in Szilvásvárad, visit the Stud Farm, where you can admire the Lipizzaner horses, which are under national protection. Interesting fact: the genetic value of the Hungarian stock of these horses is extremely high. Then head to Erdődy-Pallavicini Castle, whose foundation was built by Count Béla Keglevics, while the design actually constructed was made by Miklós Ybl.
