List of cities in Hungary Sightseeing Tours in Szilvásvárad

1. Éleskővár

Show sight on map

Sharpstone Castle is located next to Szilvásvárad, on the summit of the Kukucsó valley, Tófalu valley and Szalajka valley in the Bükk region. There is no hiking trail leading to the area, as the countryside is a zone currently used by forestry, so the area is not developed from a touristic point of view. The approach to the castle ruins is possible from Szilvásvárad by turning off the driveway leading in the Tótfalu Valley on the forestry exploration road or starting on the track of the former small railway from the Szalajka-Halastó stop towards Bánkút to the beginning of the Kukucsó valley, and from there on the forestry exploration road. The countryside can also be easily reached by bicycle, but since logging is regular in the area, it is worth driving with extreme caution and using a map due to the frequent changes in the nature of the landscape in this way. The sharpstone range, which also bears the castle, can be seen from afar, but the ruins of the castle can only be seen from the opposite Kalapat hill, not from the valleys.

Show sight on map

The Veil Falls is one of the main sights of the Szalajka Valley in Szilvásvárad, one of the outstanding natural beauties of Hungary. The Szalajka stream is fed by karst springs. From the water of these, as it reaches the surface, some of the dissolved carbon dioxide evaporates into the air, and calcium carbonate precipitates from the water thus supersaturated. The water flows down the 18 terraces of such a limestone dam, about 17 meters long.
