The Church of Avas almost solely represents the medieval Miskolc in today's city. The findings have clearly proved that a simple, straight apse church of respectable size stood at the same place in the Arpad era. In the cemetery of Avas is the belfry built in 1557. Its signals the passing of time with its distinctive chime every quarter of hour.
The classicistic church was erected in 1786-1808. It has the highest 68 meter tall tower in the church district, housing the 2,6 ton Esther Bell named after Eszter Bató daughter of a wealthy merchant family.
Hungest Hotel Palota is situated in Lillafüred, a settlement 10 kilometres from Miskolc. The castle built in eclectic style between 1927 and 1930 is surrounded by a hanging garden and a large park. The view to Szinva Stream and Hámori Lake is made even more magnificent by the murmur of the Szinva Stream waterfall in the immediate neighbourhood of the hotel.
The original building was consecrated in 1938. The design of the church was influenced by the architect's Transylvanian origin. The church was destroyed in a fire in 1997 and was rebuilt respecting the original plans of Bálint Szeghalmy, thanks to public contributions.
