Hortobagy National Park, Debrecen Reviews
Very nice and large part of the Hungary folklore. Robert was very excited about horse riding. Very interesting.
Great for families or by one's self. Great gift shop. Recommend for all who visit the area just North is Debrecen.
Wonderful nature park. Impressive biodiversity. Management wonderful. Enjoyed in the wildeness and in the museums and local food.
It is in my heart. It is freedom and beauty. Dogs, herds, shepherd, tradition and pride. Nature and thermal baths. Horses. This is My Heart.
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!
