The Avas is a hill of volcanic origin in Miskolc, Hungary. Its top (234 m above sea level, 104 m above the city) is the highest point of Miskolc proper (although other parts, annexed to the city later, lie higher up in the Bükk mountains). On the top stands a TV tower with observation deck which is a former symbol of the city and provides a nice panorama.
The name of the hill is an archaic Hungarian word meaning “forbidden”. It was named that at a time it was forbidden for shepherds to graze their herds there because the old wine cellars threatened with caving in.
