The waterfall of Ilona Valley – The falls of peace

This special, 10 metre tall waterfall can be found in the Mátra Mountains as part of the educational path along the Ilona Stream. The hiking trail starts from the Károlyi Castle at the eastern end of Parádfürdő and finishes at the waterfall.


The arboretum of Vácrátót – Where even your soul bursts into flower

The botanical garden of Szeged – Sichuan ancient pine, water lilies, Indian lotuses

The 17 hectare garden welcomes visitors with different trees and plants. Among others, the place is the home of the oldest Sichuan ancient pine in Hungary, which is surrounded by a pond of beautiful water lilies and Indian lotuses.


Wenckheim Castle – A neo-renaissance and eclectic pearl

The castle, found in Szabadkígyós in Békés County, was built between 1875 and 1879 based on the plans of Miklós Ybl. The building is quite appealing in itself, but its beauty is intensified by the surrounding park, where a school functions today.


Bokod – The floating village

There is a village in Komárom-Esztergom County, which foreigners know better than Hungarians, even though it is the perfect example that we don’t have to leave the country to see something extraordinary.
