Located in the western region of Hungary, along the Hungarian-Slovenian border, Orfalu, the smallest Slovenian settlement, dates back to 1538. In the case of Hungary, the Black Lake and similar moss-like marshlands are a curiosity in the history of flora development.
The formation of marsh is linked to the slowly warming, cool climate following the last ice age. The maps of the last century manor house clearly mark the source of the Szala stream, but today there is no visible surface connection between the mire and the stream. The rich natural values of the settlement are complemented by buildings preserving the features of folk architecture. The Black Lake and its surroundings, located on the outskirts of the village, are one of the most important protected areas of the Őrség National Park. There is also a lawn garden and tea house.
