Satoraljaujhely is a town located in Borsod-Abaj-Zempln county in northern Hungary near the Slovak border. It is 82 km east from the county capital Miskolc.


The Zemplen region centre was lucky to preserve the area’s clean air and natural environment. The shape of the neighbouring volcanic mountains is compared to the Italian Vesuvius by visitors.

There are only few places in Hungary for the lovers of winter sports, and the Magas-hill of Satoraljaujhely is a real Paradise in this respect, where sledge- and ski-tracks await visitors.

The city centre has preserved the characteristic Upper Hungary small-town atmosphere. The image of the main square is shaped by the Roman Catholic Church, the Kossuth statue and the baroque Country Hall (today Town Hall). The water of the mountain springs comes from the Nymph-well, erected between the church and the Kossuth statue. Satoraljaujhely is a border crossing to the Republic of Slovakia.
