Szádelő Valley (Slovakia)
Szádelő-völgy (Szlovákia)

The huge and beautiful canyon valley is located near Szádelő. The shape of the valley was formed by the Szár stream. The silent stream and the beautiful landscapes are the characzeristics of this area. The most interesting formation of the valley is the 105-metre-high cliff, called Cukorsüveg liked very much by the alpinists. There are a lot caves and several water-flows in the valley, too.

In the corner of North-East Hungary can be found the ruins of Szádvár. Because of the lack of excavations we don't know much about the history of this castle. The only sure thing is that the building got kingdom title because on the other side of the Ménes Valley another castle falled into ruins.   


Szendrő Castle
Szendrői vár

In the valley of River Bódva on the area of Szendrő many castles were built by the landlords. The first one was built by the Bebek family as an accommodation for the lords. After in the 16th century the castle was outmoded for army tasks, on the top of the mountain another castle was built by Italian artificer officers.  Szendrő was an important place for defence because it protected Kassa from the foreign attacks. There were desperate battles for the occupation between the Habsburg family’s army and István Bocskai, Gábor Bethlen and György Rákóczi’s I. troops.
