The Castle of Diósgyőr was mentioned the first time by Anonymus in about 1200. He named the settlement as Győr. King Béla IV. started to build the castle. In 1316 the castle was mentioned as Wywar (Newcastle) and after 1330 it was reconstructed. Since 1340 it was the kings' castle, but mainly the property of the queens That' s we also refer to as the "Castle of Queens".
3. Forest train
Originally, the Lillafüredi State Forest Railway (hence: LÁEV, from the abbreviation of its Hungarian name) was designed for the carriage of freight, in 1920. It mainly carried the wood lumbered in the forests of the Bükk Mountains. However, soon there was a need for passenger transport, and this was realized in the third year of the operation of the narrow-gauge railway. LÁEV carried both passengers and freight for 70 years. Finally, in 1990 the carriage of freight ceased. Since then, the narrow-gauge railway serves solely touristic functions.
