Zirc

Zirc is a small town situated in the picturesque High Bakony region. It is surrounded by beautiful forests which once served as a hiding place and shelter for the legendary outlaws of the Bakony Hills. The valley of the Cuha Brook, with its ravines and cliffs, provides a splendid view that you can enjoy if you take the train crossing the valley. You can also tour the area on foot or by bicycle on the designated tourist pathways. You can learn about the fauna and flora as well as the geographical conditions of the region in the Natural History Museum of the village. Walking in the arboretum, you can see various unique plant species. You can have a religious insight if you visit the Cistercian Abbey which was founded by King Béla III in the 12th century.
