The city lies at the meeting point of different geographical regions – east from the Bükk mountains, in the valley of the river Sajó and the streams and Szinva .
The Central Bükk , a gently sloping mountainous area with an altitude between 400 and 600 meters, is situated between Diósgyőr and Lillafüred ; the area is made up of limestone , slate , dolomite and other rocks from the Triassic period
Diósgyőr: The other town forming today's Greater Miskolc is mostly famous for its medieval castle .
Avas:The Avas is a hill (234 m / 780 ft) in the heart of Miskolc.
Downtown: The historical centre of Miskolc isn't as rich in monuments as that of other cities; only the Main Street City Hall Square and Elizabeth Square preserved the style of the 19th century town.
There are not only historical buildings but modern shopping malls in the downtown, too.
