The famous Lipica Stud

Szilvasvarad is the home of the stud of the famous type of horse called Lipica (Slovenia).

Bukk National Park

There are lots of intersting and nice sights and a great landscape (mainly pine-forest) around. The area east of Szilvasvarad is called Bukki Nemzeti Park (Bukk National Park) named by the mountain Bukk (it means beech) that has the highest point (959m) only 5 km from the village.

The narrow-gauge train

One of the funniest attraction is the little train which goes from Szilvasvarad to the peak where there is a nice spring and a waterfall called Fatyol-vizeses.
There are many other sights around, eg. the prison museum (see my tip and travelogue).
