The large park offers historical, natural history and commercial venues at the main headquarters. The nature display and gift shop were pleasant, but the best part was visiting parts of the extensive land area of the park! Birds everywhere... the viewing was quite good and even without binoculars, everyone can enjoy the sites and sounds of nature. A visit to... More

We stayed here almost all day in the bird park, in the bird park playground, on the horse-carriage ride, visiting a horse-ranch and seeing the large bird and animal areas. The tour with the old-fashioned bus was also interesting. Bathroom facilities were poor, but usable. There were several playgrounds for the children, a kiosk to buy some small things and... More

Loved the national park, get a taste of the steppes, the Hungarian Puszta. Brilliant. Visit the Hortobagy Visitor Centre for great tips.

Great park! We loved the wagon ride and the history of the "Puszta" as well as the great riding skills of the famous Hungarian plainsmen. Being avid birdwatchers, we found this place an amazing area for bird-watching...although we did not time our trip for the full migratory experience, we still added some new birds to our life list!

You can spend a whole day on the Hungarian plain. They take you in a horse and cart to see the animals (including rare breed pigs and sheep) and buffalo, but the highlight is the display of horse-riding - the man stands on the back of racing horses and demonstrates his skills. No chanrge for photography. The restaurant is good... More

We visited this area from 27th April to 4th May and saw many species of birds including Roller, Hoopoe and Red Footed Falcon which were all either copulating or sitting on eggs - excellent area for great photography.
