Day 1

Boldogkő Castle

If a place is called ‘happy stone’, it cannot be anything but a happy place. Wherever you look in Boldogkőváralja, the castle will always be in view. Climb up the mountain to the gate and on your way up, take a good look at the peach orchards that are so typical of the region – and once you reach the top, look around and admire the panorama from the bastion. This is the home of the Gönci apricot variety, where it is grown in the largest volume and where its tradition was revived.

Megyer hegy Tarn

Not far from Sárospatak, you will find one the most interesting and most photogenic natural wonders of Hungary. As you cross a land reminiscent of Tuscany, follow the sign to reach the former millstone quarry. Rainwater has turned its pit into a scenic lake. The workers of the quarry have carved resting places into the rhyolite rock, which is easy to cut.

Day 2

Sárospatak Castle

The best known of the Rákóczi family estates, it is the most popular sight in Sárospatak. One of the most beautiful works of late Renaissance architecture in Hungary, and home to the relics of the famous family. You must have seen it on the 500 HUF banknote several times, so why not visit it in person?

Zemplén Adventure Park

The first attraction at the Zemplén Adventure Park in Sátoraljaújhely that every visitor tries is the summer bobsled. But once you enter the park, you should also try all the others. Test yourself on a zipline, a chairlift and even a climbing wall.

Day 3

Sóstó Zoo

This has become the most popular zoo in Hungary in a very short time and there is always something happening here. It is home to ring-tailed lemurs and white tigers, both species on the verge of extinction, in an environment that is very similar to their natural habitat. You’ll feel more as though you are in a rainforest, in the desert or on the savannahs than in a zoo.

Aquarius Experience Spa

It is part of Sóstófürdő and is located in the green suburbs of Nyíregyháza. The spa complex is open all year around, and has many different features and services. Both the spa and its surroundings are very pleasant.

During your visit


Furmint is the main grape variety grown in Tokaj-Hegyalja. It is also a characteristic white wine made from this grape variety, and is the other best-known Hungarian wine. Just like Tokaji wine, the Furmint also has its own typical and easily recognisable bottle.


Stuffed cabbage is a dish with its own schools in Hungary. The women of Szatmár county make tidy little bundles stuffed with special cornmeal mush and smoked meat, served with a tomato sauce. Try it once, and you’ll never forget it. It is a source of pride for the people of Szatmár, and if you opt to try it here in this region, you are sure to get really good stuffed cabbage.
