in Mikóháza:   Hotel - Business Travel

Large village at the Zemplén, at the foot of Tokaj-Eperjes mountain range, at the Bózsva brook. According to the first written documents it could have been founded in 1235, when the Mikó family of Ubul clan settled here. The people living here dealt with agriculture, stock breeding and sylviculture during the past centuries. From the second half of the 19th century agriculture played a significant role. The settlement at the road connecting the two former county seats Kassa and Sátroaljaújhely became an educational and health centre and helped the provision of the nearby settlements. In the 20th century the settlement became known all over the country twice: in the 1930s the Gyöngyösbokréta (Pearly bouquet) song and dance ensemble, in the 1950s and 1960s the Folk ensemble of Mikóháza presented the traditions of Mikóháza in far places. At present the life of the inhabitants of the village has changed, but they try to preserve the traditions and values of the past and hand them down to the next generation. Sights in the village: the visitor arriving from Sátoraljaújhely can find the memorial with the mythic eagle of the ancient Hungarians erected in honour of the soldiers killed in World War I. on the southern edge of the village. It has become the symbol of the settlement. Passing by the memorial the tower of the Greek Catholic church can be seen. It was built in 1769. It is decorated with an iconostas of 48 pictures with Christ's cross in the middle and with Virgin Mary and Saint John on the two sides. The Millennium Park, which was established in honour of the millenary of the foundation of the state, can be found next to the church. The bell-shaped figure made by Ildikó Vincze ceramist, can be found in the centre of the park. It was made in memory of the big bell of Mikóháza which was robbed in World War I. The Pearly Bouquet community centre of traditions can be found near the memorial, it houses an exhibition of local history and a group preserving traditions.
