The Countrywide Blue Tour is a hiker tour that leads through the northern parts of Hungary from Írott-kő to Hollóháza. Its length is more than 1100 km. It is the first long-distance tourist path of Hungary and Europe. Its aim is the same as it was in 1938: to let more and more people explore our mountains and hills, get familiar with the natural beauties, built environment and historical monuments of our country.
Our selection provides not only the hiking lovers this time with the rediscovery of the movingly beautiful natural environment and already forgotten castles hiding in the heart of it. We can leave for a virtual tour that revives contemporary picture postcards and photos taken in the 1930s.
There are photos of scouts, family excursions, pictures of a famous art-historian, a newsreel from 1936 in the Mecsek Mountain and a graphic of an artist.
We wish you a pleasant roaming!
