A key tourist attraction is the naturally occurring thermal cave baths and castle of Diósgyőr. Unemployment is currently below 9%, a relatively low rate making the city less attractive for new employers.

The city has developed the territorial planning documents which declare getting Miskolc a smart city by 2030 (Urban Development Concept and Integrated Urban Development Strategy). To support the implementation of the Strategy an Integrated Territorial Program was prepared for Miskolc for the period 2014-2020 including plans for the city development to be financed from the Territorial
Operational Program (ERDF/ESF). As previously stated, Miskolc is part of the national Modern Cities Program where the Hungarian government has a cooperation agreement with the city to support projects including the smart city concept. The sources of financing are partly national sources, partly EU funding. For the implementation pre-feasibility studies for 13 actions were prepared.
