Hungarian "Toscana" (or Tuscany)


Hungarian Toscana :)

I took these photos in Gerecse hills nearby Bajna and Szomor. I think this breathtaking landscape deserves to be called "Hungarian Tuscany" even if there are not too many vineyards in this region.

In early April a real "wild garlic carpet" is covered the bottom of the forest here. And in late April and early May, when the wild garlic is blooming, the forest looks like a winter wonderland after a snowfall.
