The National Stud Szilvásvárad is located at the Bükk Mountains. In 1952 Lipizzaner foals were brought from Bábolna. The actual stud was founded in 1953. The stud's mission is to maintain the Hungarian Lippizaners.
Apart from them Gidrán horses ares located in Szilvásvárad. The stud is home to around 200 horses including 65 - 70 brood mares. It is divided into three parts: the mare farm, the stallions of the year farm, the filly and colt farm. The distances between the different parts of the stud are quite large.
For breeders an insemination station is offered.
Visitors can book riding and driving lessons as well as riding tours. They can stay overnight in nice apartments, take guided stud tours, visit the Lipizzaner museum, the carriage exhibition and the Lipizzaner show.
The stud facilities can also be rented. There are several equestrian competitions taking place at Szilvásvárad in the disciplines driving, three-day-eventing, dressage and vaulting.
