Tokaj Hill with its height of 514 metres rises like an island out of the far stretching, large flat countryside of the Great Plain. It’s bordered to the north by the main road number 37, some small hills and the Bodrog, to the east by the Bodrog and Tisza rivers, to the south by the Tisza and its old backwaters and floodplains, whilst to the west by flat, almost marshy land. The once famous market towns and villages, including the eponymous town of Tokaj, almost without exception dot the foot of the hill due to the surrounding wetlands.
