This quiet natural reserve, inhabited with lizards, foxes, badgers, and birds, is located about 250 meters from Budapest on top of Sas-hill. Its name derives from the Hungarian "Sashegy" meaning "eagle hill," but despite the 17th-century legend about eagles this protected area is famous because of its flora which has remained here since the Ice Age.
