Lillafured Things to Do
St. Stephan's cave
St. Stephan's cave is quite different than Anna's. It has interesting stalactites and stalagmites. About 170 metres of the cave are accessible to public. You can visit is each hour from 9 till 5.
Entrance frr 600 Ft for adult in 2004.
Hamori (Foundry) Lake
You can't miss it -- the lake dominates the village -- you can hire boats from the jetty below the road, just opposite the Palota Hotel.
One of the caves in the area.
In the past it's been used for christian chapels.
A short tour (maybe 30 minutes) with a local guide, speaking hungarian.Related to:
- Hiking and Walking
The narrow-gauge line from Miskolc to Garadna (passing through Lillafured) was originally built as a forestry railway in 1919/20 and passenger services started in 1923. It's just half an hour from Miskolc to Lillafured, a delightful ride through wooded hillsides.
Trains run approximatel every hour, depending on the time of year -- the first train from Miskolc is 09-15 and the last one back from Lillafured is 16-20, but do check -- the website is shown below.
Trains from Miskolc leave from the LAEV station at Dorottya utca. The LAEV station is out of town -- take the no 1 tram in the opposite direction from the main Tiszai train station and get off 1 or 2 stops after the football ground 'Stadion' (on your left) -- the narrow-gauge station is then on your right.Related to:
- National/State Park
Take a walk ....
Favorite thing: Take a walk from the Hotel Palota, down through the park -- through the gate in my photo and down to Anna Barlang Cave and the waterfall.
From there you can walk down to the village of Lillafured -- there is a Metallurgy Museum there should you be so inclined ....
Favorite thing: The waterfall is opposite the entrance to Anna Barlang cave, reached by following the path down from the Hotel Palota, through the park.
Anna Barlang cave
Favorite thing: The show cave Anna Barlang is reached by following the path down from the Hotel Palota through the park.
It was closed when I was there -- I think they need groups of 10 or more although I'm not sure about that.
