Márokföld is located in the meeting point of Őrség - Göcsej – Hetés regions, in the southwest of Hungary, only few minutes from the Slovenian boarder. The name Őrség comes from guardians, who were guarding the west boarder in the time of the conquest of the Carpathian Basin by Hungarians. Characteristic type of villages has been formed in this gently waving hilly region. The most beautiful and well preserved villages are Szalafő and Pankasz.
The wavy-hilly surroundings hide countless hiking and cycling tracks and the nearby spas attract tired, stressed people from all over. You can also find here educational trails to explore consciously the local fauna and flora.
Besides that, there is still more sights to explore! The oldest, and surely one of the most beautiful parish churches in the Őrség region comes from the XIII. century, and it is called the church of lights. The traditional craftwork is pottery, and there are still active workshops in the neighborhood, where you can take a peek at the creating process. For tourists keen on environment and conscious tourism we would recommend visiting a traditional goat farm, where you can taste regional cheese and wines. For those who admire the relationship of nature and hunting, we would advise visiting the Őrgés Hunting exhibition.
A vivid range of programs waits for guests visiting Őrség during the whole year. Just to mention some of them: ’Blossoming Days’ – art festival, Pottery days, Őrség Fairs, and the famous International Pumpkin Festival.
If you will decide to travel a little bit further, we highly recommend wine tasting in the Slovenian Jerusalem, and visiting the nearby cities of Bad Radkersburg, Maribor or Varasd.
