Bükk National Park is a national park in the Bükk Mountains of Northern Hungary, near Miskolc. It was founded in 1976 as the third national park in the country. It contains 431.3 km² . Mountainous and forested, Bükk is Hungary's largest national park and is situated in the northern mountains, between Szilvásvárad and Lillafüred. Bükk's important geological features include various karst formations within its limestone mountains - particularly caves, swallow-holes, and ravines. The country's longest and deepest cave, Istvánlápa, is located in the park. Bükk National Park also contains ninety species of nesting birds, some considered endangered.
The Vatican Climate Forest was to be located within the Park. KlimaFa was started by a San Francisco promoter, Russ George, who promised a carbon offsetting project, intended to offset the Vatican's carbon dioxide emissions. However, no trees have been planted. In an interview with the Christian Science Monitor, Lajos Kiss, mayor of the village of Tiszakeszi pointed out an empty area along the Tisza River where the trees were supposed to be planted. The Monitor also said the Vatican was considering "legal action in order to defend the Vatican’s reputation."

  • Since my childhood I have been to the vetches and always reassure. I was in sport, I went to the lake, I walked in the Hámori pond, I climbed the cliff, I slept several times, and I was even hunted. City. It is home to countless beautiful paths, lookout places and springs. I'm glad I can live near you because I can be here at any time in 20 minutes. Therefore, it is good for Miskolc.

  • A beautiful and calm place to visit. A unique type of nature, also it's possible to rent a bike for riding through the upper sides of the mountain. There is a need to be careful about the roads, kind of harsh roads to ride a bike. So suitable for running or hiking. Also small lakes and rivers, even a waterfall to see. Perfect sceneries from the upper parts. Nice choice to run away from the city’s crowd for a weekend.
  • There is a great deal of work to be done in this area. There is a common denominator in this regard: health care providers, health care providers and fencers. The principle of the freedom to provide services is a fundamental principle of the Charter of Fundamental Rights.
