Hortobagy National Park, Debrecen Reviews

  • Great place to visit with the family specially to try and interest the kids in wildlife (birds) and plants. We took a small boat to the marsh area - they have built a small island which is perfect for sightseeing. There's a guide once you arrive by boat which explains everything about the little marsh area/island. There are guides that speak English I'd your Hungarian isn't perfect as well as signs/ posters that have Hungarian and English information about the area. There are different paths that take you to different huts - some of them have helpers/guide that explain what type of birds you can see. We even signed a book at the end with a lovely message :) A fun day out!

  • Nice place to spend a whole day with friends and family. It is a great opportunity to see some parts of the Hungarian culture.

  • Great place to visit, nice guide who knew everything about the area, local fauna and flora.

  • Historic area on Hungarian plains. Shepherds museum.

  • One of the nicest place in Hungary. It is very well maintained and you can observe rare animals, for example, rare birds and fishes at Lake Tisza.
