The attractive administrative town set under the Tent hill at the northeastern tip of the wine region, Sátoraljaújhely is on the border with Slovakia. It has some fine civic buildings, great pedestrian area – and huge investment in outdoor sports and activities.

Highlights

Events

City of dance – folk, ballroom and majorettes!

Activities

The adventure park for some adrenalin – zipwire up to 85-km/hour over 1046 m between two moutnains, bob, cable forest journey and more. Even skiing in winter.

Two stunning cellar areas, Zsolyomka, a quaint valley set with cellar houses either side of a stream, and the Ungvári on the road out towards Slovakia. Deservedly part of the UNESCO World Heritage.

The Jewish cemetery is a popular place of pilgrimage.

The Museum of Hungarian Language (A Magyar Nyelv Múzeuma) in Széphalom takes the visitor on a journey through the intriguing Hungarian language. Particularly interesting for Hungarian speakers, but the language tree in the park is definitely worth seeing.

Explore the countryside on superb bike paths created on the former narrow-gauge railway route and separate from the road. Two main directions – 11 km to Sárospatak, or northwards up the hillier Hegyköz, all the way to Košice (Kassa) in Slovakia. Bikes are available for hire from the TourInform.
