4+1 Bucket List of Places Everyone Must See! We Show You the Most Beautiful Waterfalls in Hungary

Veil Waterfall

One of the most popular hiking areas in Hungary has many natural attractions that can be explored on foot, by bike or on the famous little forest train. The most popular place in the Szalajka Valley is the Fátyol Waterfall, which is not only a valley, but also one of the most beautiful natural phenomena in our country. Due to the harsh water conditions, it sometimes dries up.

The water coming from the belly of the mountain and flowing in several degrees shows a different picture in each season of the year. Many believe that the waterfall got its name from the distinctive white veil of water spray, while others believe that it got its name from the white limestone with a lace-like pattern.

The waterfall is located a few minutes from the end of the forest light railway in Gloriett-tiztás, but can also be reached from the large car park in Szilvásvárad.

Gijini Valley Waterfall

Jegenye-völgy waterfall is located in Solymár, on the Paprikás River. It is the largest waterfall in the Buda Mountains and a popular hiking spot around the capital. The water cascading down the 4-metre-high rock steps originates from a small rock well. Earlier, in the 1940s, a beach bath was created on the stream above the waterfall.

When the water flow is high, the waterfall often forms a large, deep pool at the point of impact. The force of the river water has already destroyed this stone bench a little, but it has not yet been able to completely penetrate it, so even now there is a large waterfall that has fixed itself in the riverbed. There is a similar, much smaller stone dam that blocks the river's path for about 450 meters deep as well, but only a small roar is created there because of this.

The easiest way to get there is via BKV bus line 64, which is about a ten-minute walk from the Solymár and Kökörcsin utca bus stations.

Roman Bath Waterfall

One of the most beautiful and popular hiking areas in Pakoni is Római-fürdő between Pakoni and Jasd, where the Gaja stream continues its journey between huge rock walls after a beautiful waterfall. There are special living rocks next to the waterfall and a deep pool below.

Not far to the west of the waterfall is a rest area with tables and benches. Hikers should visit the Savanyú Jóska Cave on the side of the valley or the nearby Vadalmás Spring.

If you come by bus, you should get off at Petőfi Sándor utca stop, and the easiest way for drivers to leave their cars is at the edge of the forest, at the beginning of the hiking trail.

Lilafuredi Waterfall

The largest vertical waterfall in Hungary was created during the construction of the Palace Hotel. The water rushes down from a height of 20 metres and consists of three sections. The waterfall is fed by the Szinva stream.

The approximately twenty-kilometre long Szenva River, which originates in Lillefured, crosses Miskolc in an east-west direction and flows into the Sajo River. From the walkway that reaches the waterfall about halfway up the waterfall, you can safely descend to the waterfall on a path next to the fence, and from the Anna limestone cave, you can reach directly to the foot of the waterfall.

Interestingly, the waterfall has literally disappeared recently, as Lake Hamori has frozen over, which is why they stopped pumping water from the lake, ensuring the waterfall's continued water supply.

Ilona Valley Waterfall

Hungary's largest natural waterfall is located in the classical Mátra Gorge. The river, descending over a rock wall about 10 meters high, reaches the cauldron with a steep slope. The venerable tree trunks, covered with ash, sometimes demonstrate the power of the raging stream. Only the Zinfa Waterfall (Lillafüredi Waterfall) is larger than the Ilona Gorge waterfall, but it was created artificially.

The waterfall itself can be reached from Parádfürdő, from the road behind the Erzsébet Park Hotel. By car, you can go to Szent István-Kút after the youth camp on the asphalt road. There is a rest area and parking next to the well.
