Szinva Waterfall in Lillafüred, Miskolc
The waterfall on the Szinva River in the Miskolc area of Lillafüred is not of natural origin. In 1920, the construction of a neo-Renaissance hotel began at the artificial lake of Hamori. In plans of architects and landscape designers, there were terraced gardens, as well as a waterfall, for which the direction of the Szinva River was specially changed.
In height, the Szinva waterfall reaches 20 m, thus being the highest waterfall in Hungary. On a very hot summer when water in the upper part dries, it is added artificially. Throughout the year there are many tourists, especially photographers, for whom the waterfall is a favorite theme for their works.
The entrance to the hanging gardens, where the waterfall falls, is free. Nearby there is the entrance to the Anna cave.
