Monok is a village in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén, Hungary and is part of the Tokaj wine region.GeographyThe nearest town is Szerencs 12km away. Neighbouring villages are Golop 5km away, Legyesbénye 7km away and Tállya 7km away.The Zemplén Mountains have two sides: on the north Vilvitány Hill, on the south Szerencs Hill. The village lies in the valley between the two.Although the north is mountainous the south is lower lying at around 300m. On the north and south slopes there are fields and vineyards whose wines compete with those from Tokaj, and the fields bordering the vineyards offer a beautiful view of the Tatra Mountains.HistoryIt is not certain when the village was established, but it was some time during the Mongol invasion of Europe, or the earlier Hungarian invasion (honfoglalás).The first record of the village is in 1392 and the Monaky family owned it in the 13th century. The name of the village comes from Slavic monoh meaning "monk". During the Ottoman Empire the village was razed and in 1567 it was recorded as being just barren fields. Towards the end of this century the village was reinhabited and around 1570 a small castle was built in the Renaissance style. Later, the village was owned by the Andrássy family who renovated the castle, but because it was too small they built another nearby in the Classical style.
