National Park
The Bükk National Park is a national park in the Bükk Mountains of Northern Hungary, near Miskolc. It was founded in 1976 as the third national park in the country. It contains 431.3 km² (of which 37.74 km² is under increased protection). Mountainous and forested, Bükk is Hungary's largest national park and is situated in the northern mountains, between Szilvásvárad and Lillafüred. Bükk's important geological features include various karst formations within its limestone mountains - particularly caves (once inhabited by pre-historic people), swallow-holes, and ravines. The country's longest (4,000 metres) and deepest (245 metres) cave, Istvánlápa, is located in the park. Bükk National Park also contains ninety species of nesting birds, some considered endangered.The Vatican Climate Forest was to be located within the Park. KlimaFa ("Climate Trees") was started by a San Francisco promoter, Russ George, who promised a carbon offsetting project, intended to offset the Vatican's carbon dioxide emissions. However, no trees have been planted. In an interview with the Christian Science Monitor, Lajos Kiss, mayor of the village of Tiszakeszi pointed out an empty area along the Tisza River where the trees were supposed to be planted. The Monitor also said the Vatican was considering "legal action in order to defend the Vatican’s reputation."

  • Dear pnztros can quickly become ineffective under the open kisvonatra száltunk, ébredezését csodálhattuk from the Beech. Őskohót, the Ómassai and the pisztrángost we looked at. Interesting this forest railway was used to travel.

  • Interesting place for walks in the mountains and for mushroom picking. Mired in the Green mild slopes form the space trips Saturday Sunday. Numerous guest houses will be helpful for those seeking accommodation. It is worth to stay here at least for one night, commendable is also appealing a ride on the narrow-gauge railway.

  • We only went one hike, so we missed out on the caves streams and waterfalls found at some places, but the trail up into the mountain to the lookout tower was well marked and easy to hike, and the view...  more »

  • If you are looking to spend time walkung aroung, watching nature and animals in the wild then this plase is great. If you are lucky you find wolf pack prints on the trails. Spotting them is something not many can briag about.
  • I love this place and it is one of the reasons I still live in Miskolc. It's a great place for outdoor activities all year round (hiking, running, cycling, cross-country skiing, also rock climbing). There are peaceful forests and meadows, caves to explore and wonderful vistas from its many peaks. The only reason why I don't give 5 stars is the extent of human intervention. It's a crying shame how they clear hillsides of forests in an area that is supposed to be a protected national park. If that ever changes, it will be paradise on earth.
  • A must see if you like nature
  • Kekesteto 1010 metres, the highest point un Hungary
  • Such a beautiful place. I recommend dedicating a full day of hiking in this park.
