Introducing Miskolc

Miskolc, Hungary’s fourth-largest city after Budapest, Debrecen and Szeged, is not so attractive in its own right, but its position at the foot of the Bükk Hills makes it a convenient springboard for trips to the thermal cave baths of nearby Miskolctapolca, the castle ruins in the western suburb of Diósgyőr and a forest train ride to the picturesque hillside village of Lillafüred, from where you can hike into Bükk National Park. The town is sizeable enough to have a number of churches and museums, a few bars and even its own tramline.
