Tihany primeval lavender
Another beautiful destination, with the most beautiful landscapes of which can be seen in Provence, France, but we Hungarians do not have to go that far if we want to enjoy the beauty of purple flowers. In Tihany, the lavender harvest is usually held in June as part of a festival.
The high-mountain Szalajka Valley, which ends in Szilvásvárad, is one of the most beautiful parts of the Bükk Mountains, best developed for hikers. The rapid trout have been living in the Szalajka stream for a long time, in order to reproduce it, the riverbed of the stream was swollen back in several places, and an artificial farm was established. One of the most popular excursion destinations in Hungary, the valley-like valley inhabited since prehistoric times was named after the burning of lard called salalkali after Latin sal alcali. Many of its natural sights and industrial monuments can be explored on foot, by bike or by the famous forest train.
