Hungarians who have been to Ireland often tell tales to their jealous audience about the far-famed Giant’s Causeway. Very few know the well-known basalt columns have a Hungarian counterpart, which is just as beautiful, though not as legendary.

The memorable basalt columns of Hegyestű are reminiscent of an ancient volcano, not to mention that the view from the top is breathtaking. At the geological exhibition site created in 1998, visitors can learn all about local geology and view a monumental outdoor stone collection.

Tip: Visiting is free of charge from November to the middle of March.
