Zemplén Mountains, Hungary (Tokajer Gebirge, Ungarn) (Zempléni-hegység, Magyarország) 10.2009.

The Zemplén mountains (also Tokaj mountains) is a mountain range in North-East Hungary, famous for its culture, its many medieval stone castles and its interesting fauna and flora influenced by the Carpathian mountains, and last, but not least, for its viper population. In 2009, October was very nice and with some friends, we took a trip there, to the peaceful mountain villages of Hejce and Mogyoróska and to the ruins of the Regéc Castle, built around 1300. Location: Zemplén Mountains. Date: 03.10.2009.
