This is the Hungarian lowland with local traditions. The Hortobagy National Park is really amaizing with its birds and animals. A must!

Hortobagy is Hungary's only National Park. Great place to bring the family, as you travel around the park in a "historical" Hungarian farm cart viewing farm animals and learning of traditional Hungarian farm life.

If it is October it is time to catch the largest European population of Euroasian cranes during their well deserved rest in Hortobagy before taking off towards their final destination in Africa. Absolutely magnificent view when 1000s of birds keep flying in to their resting place around local fishponds from the surrounding corn fields where they spend most of the... More

Most of the attractions are about the traditional lifestyle of lifestock keepers in the Puszta. If you are interested in this topic, it is a nice place for you. Otherwise it might be a little boring.

Hortobagy National Park can be visited on a carriage. The visit starts with a trick riding demonstration. Then the visitors embark on horse-drawn carriages (15 people per carriage) for a 1.5 hour tour in the park. The carriages make several stops to observe the animals of the park and it is possible to ride a horse (one minute ride). Our... More
