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."

  • It's a beautiful park and quite a walk, so I would suggest taking the train up and then leisurely walk your way back to the entrance. Do not rush. Give 3-4 hours to soak in the atmosphere as there's quite a lot to see.
