DEAR CELLAR VISITOR!
The Avas-hill is one of the symbols of the town Miskolc, although it means different things for the people who live here and different things for the visitors. The onetime vineyards and orchards of the hill played an important role in the economy of the town, employed the grape cultivator wine-growers, the craftsmen who produced wooden tools and pots but also the merchants who carried the full barrels by farm-wagon to the boonies. Avas was the scene of social life, entertainment, attracted the writers, poets, artists who wrote poems, painted pictures about their recollections or took photos to record them for themselves and for the after-ages. The several century old Avas Reformed and Mindszenti Roman Catholic Church also played an importan role in the belief of the thriving town where the population was growing. In the cemeteries of the hill you can find the graves of town builders from several generation.
