Miskolc is a city in northeastern Hungary at the foot of the Bükk Mountains. It’s a picturesque town that’s an important centre for industry in the country, where trams roll through streets flanked by cherry blossoms. Visitors to Miskolc can enjoy many outdoor activities, including relaxing in natural hot springs and visiting historical sites. You'll find a range of hotels in Miskolc, including luxury modern and fairly palatial accommodations. You’ll also find a wealth of business opportunities focused around the city’s industries.
What areas in and around Miskolc will I enjoy visiting?
The Centrum district is the city’s commercial heart. It's here you’ll find a choice of shopping centres, independent retail and restaurant outlets and many of the city’s businesses. There are many natural lakes around the city, too. These include the beautiful Debreczeni-tó, and the natural caves housing thermal springs. The city sits under the sprawling mountains to the west, in Bükki Nemzeti Park.
What are the business opportunities I should be aware of here?
It almost seems surprising that such an aesthetically pleasing town could also be home to so much heavy industry. Metal working and automotive manufacturing in particular have long been important sectors in the region. The Miskolc Southern Industrial Park is a hub for manufacturing and engineering businesses. The city is two hours by car from Budapest, and the introduction of the M3 motorway has strengthened the city’s connection to other regional and national centres of business. Retail is another big employer in town, with the Miskolc Plaza and Szvinapark shopping centres containing a range of popular outlets.
What leisure activities can I enjoy when I book a hotel in Miskolc?
The Cave Bath is one of the city’s unique and most appealing attractions. It’s a short distance from Centrum and features a natural warm pool carved through a cave. Visitors can enjoy simply relaxing in the water or go for a massage, mud bath, or beauty treatment at the on-site spa. The Diósgyőr Castle is one of the city’s most iconic buildings and was built around the 12th century. It features stunning hilltop views of Miskolc and the local surroundings. When staying at a Miskolc hotel, be sure to try Hungarian cuisine, based around aromatic and spicy meat dishes, at a local restaurant. And you can wash it down with Hungary’s home-grown, distinctly herbal liqueur, Unicum.
