Visit Hortobagy National Park in 2024

Hortobágy National Park, established in 1973, is Hungary's largest protected area and stands as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Covering over 800 square kilometers, this expansive park represents the traditional Hungarian steppe, known as the Puszta. The landscape is characterized by its vast, treeless grasslands, shimmering fish ponds, and unique wetlands. The park is not just a nature lover's paradise, but it's also a living testament to a pastoral culture that has been maintained for over two millennia. Traditional herding practices continue here, with Hungarian Grey Cattle, Racka sheep, and Nonius horses grazing the fields. Birdwatchers flock to the park to catch glimpses of rare species such as the Great Bustard, red-footed falcons, and aquatic birds.
Hortobágy National Park is more than just a nature reserve; it's a celebration of Hungary's rich pastoral traditions, where the harmony between man and nature has flourished for centuries.
