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!

Five of us went to Matai Menes to experience life on the Great Hungarian Plain. Before the tour we went through the stables to see the horses and bought some tradional lacework and ceramics from the little shops there. Then out to the plain in a horse drawn wagon to meet horsemen, see traditional farm dwellings and the unique horned sheep, Magalican pigs (low cholesterol!) and the grey cattle. It was really interesting and good fun. The only thing missing was the riding on multiple horse back.

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 too.

I was amazed how much I enjoyed the "puszta" landscape and the walks we made. First I thought, there is absolutely nothing there. Yellow grass, some cows, flies, and fata morgana. Well, yes, this is all there, but this "nothing" is more than you would first think. It is so calming and sedative being there. The grey cows are majestic and beautiful, and if you look carefully, there is much more vegetation than just yellow grass. Lovely and rare flowers, birds and of course the endless landscape panorama.
