Miskolc was the last bigger Hungarian town I've never visited in my life and I was surprised to find out that the best things to do in Miskolc - are actually outside of the town: Lillafüred & the castle of Diósgyőr. While the town centre is an unimpressive -although developing- place to visit, the Deszkatemplom (wooden board church) is a... More

The temple completely burned in 1997. Unbelievable the fact that the church was rebuilt in its original form in April 1999 because of the nationwide unity.

This great building is not the original indeed but equally beautiful. After a sect or cult member's arson attack Hungarian building masters, carpenters from Transsylvania helped in remodelling. Well worth a visit ! And there is surprisingly much to see in Miskolc...

The Wooden Church is a nice church. It's antique looking. There's not much to see in Miskolc but this is worth a quick visit.

This church is not wood!! First stone theater in the country. In the middle of downtown, the pedestrian streets located at the intersection of the building. The area is difficult to find an empty parking space on weekdays. But there are also underground parking spaces, there always. Here, the Opera Festival is held every year in June. The neighborhood restaurants,... More

Sadly,this is not the original,as it was,inexplicably,burnt down in an arson attack in the nineties. But it is a quite striking building and the carving inside is superb.Well worth a look if you`re ever in Miskolc.

The beautiful icons on the altar can be found in the GREEK ORTHODOX church, not in the Calvinist "old wooden" church called Deszkatemplom. By the way this nice wooden building /rebuilt after the arsonist attack by a HIT cult member some years ago/ is a landmark of Miskolc, one of the most famous structures of the city. Master carpenters from... More
