Our tour we will start of visit to Open Air Museum of Sosto which is located in city Nyiregyhaza. Firstly we will see the local center of the city and than to go to Open Air Museum. The second largest ethnographic open-air museum in Hungary presents folk architecture from five different regions of the country. We can wander among the typical buildings of the Upper Tisza region, we can take part in various programs of the open-air museum of the salt spa. In addition to the five landscapes shown, a complete spindle-shaped village center was built in the central part of the open-air museum with a church and bell tower in the main square, as well as a school, grocery store, parish house, fire station, pub, dry mill and various workshops. Next we will drive to Tákos where visit to one of the most beautiful and famous churches in the Upper Tisza region, a pearl of Hungarian folk architecture, is the "barefoot Notre Dame", a Reformed church of Takos. The church was built in 1766, as evidenced by the inscription on one of the cassettes: "IN ANNO 1766, DIE 30 JUNY". It is believed that "people rose from wood and mud" in the time of Maria Theresa, who abandoned stone and brick from the followers of the Reformed religion. The people of Takos still built a beautiful church from what was abundant for the people of the Shore — wood and mud. The church has a timber frame, a flat wall (a pound of reed, a clay-drenched wall) and is covered with wooden tiles. The walls were made of clay and clay glued to the wicker, and since the dirt had to be kneaded barefoot, it was called "Notre Dame barefoot." The interior is the work of many hands, but it seems like a uniform, beautiful example of folk architecture. There are 58 painted cassettes on the ceiling, praising the work of the master Ferenc Landor Astalos, on which we can admire various floral motifs, and on the inscriptions placed between them you can read the history of the construction of the church. Interestingly, no two cassettes are alike. All this is perfectly combined with the simplicity of the whitewashed walls. The church also has a gallery tower 16 meters high. Next we will visit to the Reformed Church at Charod is one of the most beautiful examples of late Romanesque village churches. The church on the bank of the stream, surrounded by flowers, is decorated with the 13th century. the frescoes of the century make it especially interesting. Among the frescoes, the most ancient are the figures of saints on the left wall of the nave, moving from left to right in strict Byzantine order, with the apostles John, Cosmas and Damian, the holy saints, Saints Peter and Paul, the Virgin Mary and the Holy Family. On the wall of the sanctuary today you can see only six of the twelve apostles, and on both sides of the window we see the figures of St. Catherine and St. Dorothy, and above the window, Christ who has risen from the tomb comes to life. Noteworthy is the painted wooden ceiling from 1777, the painted wooden pulpit in the folk baroque style, the porch and benches of the same age. In the church, you can see the Redi epitaph, made in 1758. Next we will visit  to the Greek Catholic Church in Mariapoche is one of the most significant pilgrimage sites in Hungary, and its reputation has been linked to the icon of the weeping Mary for hundreds of years. Mariapoch is the world famous temple of Mary, one of the privileged places of worship of Mary. Glory came to the city in 1696, when the image of the Virgin Mary began to cry for the first time. Poch's image was created in 1676 by Judge Laszlo Chigri of Mariapoka in memory of his release from oaths and gratitude, Turkish slavery. Our last stop in this tour will be at  the Nyírbátor Castle in the castle of the legendary Bathoryak is one of the most beautiful monuments of the Renaissance in Hungary. Only the former canteen has survived from the former fortress, and in its halls revives the legends and the era of the Bathory family. The castle is first mentioned in 1549, when Nyirbator's namesake, the Bathory family, rebuilt and expanded the more modest estate around 1500.  In the 16th century, only part of the northern wing, the former canteen building, which was also used as a granary, stood, the remains of the rest of the buildings were demolished. After we return to Debrecen.
