Normafa is a popular tourist sight in the Buda Hills. It is mainly known for its panoramic scenery and fresh air. It is located in Svábhegy [hu], a part of the 12th district of Budapest,

The name[edit]

The name is derived from the name of a tree, the "Norma tree". Allegedly the beech tree was planted by King Matthias Corvinus in the 15th century. The name reflects an on-location performance by opera singer Rozália Klein Schodel and performers of the Hungarian National Theater in a rendition of the Cavatina from Vincenzo Bellini's Norma.[1] The tree itself fell on the morning of June 19, 1927. The tree is commemorated in a poem by Gábor Devecseri.
