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.
