Head towards the Miskolc area, starting with the Diósgyőr Castle in the morning, then the Fazola smelter, the Orthodox Church Museum and the Ottó Herman Museum. As lunchtime approaches, stroll into the centre, have lunch and then enquire after theatre tickets for an evening performance at the Miskolc Theatre.
In the afternoon, visit Lillafüred, take a boat trip on Lake Hámori, admire St Stephen or St Anne’s Cave and the magnificent Palace Hotel. In the Garadna Valley, you can travel by narrow gauge railway to the trout farm, where you will find one of the best fish frier’s in the country.
Return to Miskolc and stroll on the Avas Hill in the evening, visit a local winery and taste some Miskolc wines, which are currently undergoing a renaissance.
In the morning, head north and visit Edelény in the Sajó Valley, bearing in mind that it will take more than an hour to visit the country’s most beautiful early Baroque building, the L’Huillier-Coburg Palace. From here, head to Virág Hill on the edge of Edelény for some wine tasting in the cellars of a local winery.
Return to Miskolc for lunch, stop at the Pittyén vineyard in Nyékládháza for a quick flight of wines, then visit the ruins of Ónod Castle and the memorial site of the Battle of Muhi, both important places in Hungarian history. Heading east from here, visit Tibolddaróc, which boasts cellars carved into the tuff, small family and large wineries, palaces and delicious sparkling wines.
And as you are here, make sure you climb up to the lookout too, where there is a lovely view of the valley and the village with verdant vineyards behind you.
