Everyday Life in Hungary

Cruising around pretty Tamási, Hungary

Tucked away behind the main town of Tamási is Tamási wildlife and game park. A large forested area open to the public to see the deer in their natural surroundings. Unfortunately, I could only explore the grand approach to this huge fallow deer park but not go inside due to the Covid19 virus.

At this current time the forest park is closed but there is lots of information about the history and location to be found here.

The approach road follows a good sized pretty lake with vantage points all the way round. I am not absolutely sure about the history of this quaint wooden building but I think it’s a love house??

Weeping Willows and rushes surrounded the lakeside which gave such a romantic feel.

I could see the little wooden house between the rushes. A young couple stood in the perfect beauty spot, oblivious to me taking photos. They were actually the only people I saw on my walk.

The little wooden bridge to the the love house.

The romantic bridge I crossed to reach the love house had hundreds of padlocks on it. A common sight in the capital Budapest but the first time I have seen this tradition in rural Hungary.

My last picture of the love house, after much patience and waiting the young couple finally left. I returned over the bridge and carried on.

The lake looked rather brown today from this angle, which was a shame as I have seen it bright blue in the past. I always like to look at the various boards dotted around in these forestry parks. I might not be able to understand the text but I look at the pictures to gleen my information.

My trusty companions, my son and my husband fed up with waiting for me…they don’t mind really! 😉

One half of the lake was set aside for breeding frogs….there were hundreds of them making a hell of a noise!

I came across this MASSIVE tree trunk, with beautiful mosses growing all over it. It was quite magnificent. I rather liked the fence too, perfect for our garden, I have pinched the idea!

Leaving the deer park behind we ventured up into the hills surrounding Tamási. Every turn we made led us through many attractive little lanes, quite charming.

At the highest point I looked back and realised how steep the road was and how high we had climbed. This chap stood majestically at a crossroads with his bunch of grapes at his side, this was vineyard country!

I don’t think this property was occupied but it made me look twice particularly at the thatched roof.

Castle, Wine Museum, Viewing Spot.

We did not see the castle but we did get some spectacular views and enjoyed driving through the many vineyards.

Stunning view across the flat terrain of Tolna County Hungary.

We passed the satellite aerial on the way up, you can see the vines in the foreground.

Finally just a bit of fun: These shots were taken by my son, of me taking shots of the wooden love house!

We had an excellent family drive out with lots to see and photograph. We finished our trip with a picnic of Gyros chicken with salads and sauces in wraps from our favourite place in Tamási… Dam Gyros.

There are so many beautiful interesting places to explore all just on our doorstep. We are so lucky. Watch out for more walks around the charming villages and settlements in the Hungarian countryside.

Do you like exploring new places? I do. I would love to hear of new places in Hungary which are worth taking my camera too. Drop me a line in the comments. Many thanks.
