Environment 

The area around Zalalövő – mostly from the south – is covered with dense, mainly beech, pine forests in several places. In this area, untouched in many places, there are several protected, rare plant and animal species (such as forest cyclamen , spring tufa , checkered lily , greyhound wine , Siberian female petal , common snake tongue , cockroach , European chamois ).

The large and constantly increasing traffic on road 86 passing through the settlement causes serious air pollution and noise pollution in the central, relatively small part of the settlement, a problem that has not yet been approved.

Transport 

Zalalövő has now become a railway junction, which it once picked up, then rebuilt on roughly its old route, and in 2000 . Thanks to the construction of the railway line between Zalalövő and Őrihodos ( Slovenia ), which was handed over on 17 December , it has since become part of the only international railway line establishing a direct connection between Hungary and Slovenia . On the line, suburban trains run from Zalaegerszeg , and some continue to Őriszentpéter , or all the way to Őrhodos. The city’s modern train station is also served by a daily InterCity service, whichArriving from Ljubljana . To Budapest . At Zalalövő, the currently interrupted Körmend – Zalalövő railway line connects to the main line.
