The historic Tokaj wine region has been producing “the king of wines and the wine of kings” for 450 years. Crowned heads of states, including Russian tsars, Polish kings and the Pope of Rome were among regular customers of the wines made from grapes which ripen on the sunny hill until late autumn giving them high sugar content. The exhibition at the Tokaj Museum traces the glorious history of the drink initially used as medicine in the middle ages. Volcanic hiking trails give a full panorama of the region.
