Lillafüred and its glimmering cliffs
The other popular holiday destination in the Bükk region is Lillafüred, a town just a few kilometres from the centre of Miskolc. Try the chair lift or test yourself in the local fun park. However, the natural and architectural treasures themselves are also worth a visit. There are some botanic rarities in the hanging garden of the Palace Hotel, a building built in a Renaissance Revival style, but the area is full of natural treasures as well. You only have to take a few steps from the hotel to reach the 20-metre Lillafüred waterfall, then – just a little further on – you will find yourself at Anna Cave, a natural limestone cave that is unique even by international standards. Make sure your time in Lillafüred includes a visit to Szent István cave where, if you are fortunate enough, you can catch a classical music concert in the cool Theatre. After a long and tiring day of sightseeing, visit the nearby trout farm to taste the freshly fried fish.
