Hungarian Highlights - Part 14 (Tokaj)

Link to Part 13

Tokaj was a charming little place full of wine cellars and simple old world charm. Unfortunately it rained for much of the time I spent there but since the town sported the first hills I had seen in close to a week, I didn't mind much.

Bodrog River near Tokaj.

Apparently the Tour de France made a Hungarian detour.

The wine cellars (and the wine therein) were a sight to see. Many centuries-old cellars are carved out right into the hills.

You know you're in the Old Country when...
