Wine Weekend in Tokaj

Left for Tokaj on Friday afternoon
to spend the weekend there
tasting Tokaj wines
.
The town of Tokaj can be found at the feet of
the highest and most preserved volcano of Hungary,
at the confluence of the Rivers Tisza and Bodrog
.

Had made a reservation for 2 nights at Toldi Fogado
.
Got rooms 207 & 208 with friends,
kind of an apartment,
these 2 rooms sharing a small hallway,
bathroom and huge balcony
.
Room 208
.
Room 208
- part of the balcony in the backround
.
Room 208
- nice, basic hotel room
.
The hotel has a wellness department
with jacuzzi, swimming pool & sauna
- simple but nice for a morning swim
and a short relaxing moment in the afternoon
.
Friday dinner at the hotel
.
Not a very busy place
- some locals arrived later,
mainly for drinks
.
Mushroom soup
- very tasty!
.
Grilled gooseliver with mushroom stew
and diced potato
- also very tasty
.
Good Hungarian food!
.
