About Hórtobagy National Park

The Hortobágy is Hungary’s most famous National Park, and covers a large area of marshlands and Puszta, the Hungarian version of the steppes. Hortobágy is also Hungary´s first National Park and is one of the westernmost extensions of the essentially central Asian steppe ecosystem, thereby holding the promise of exotic, eastern species of plants and animals.

  1. Rob de Jong

    This is a great guide with many valuable suggestions for the individual traveler. The details on natural history show that the writer knows more than most insiders and locals. A great aspect of this guide and others Crossbill guides is that it always tries to explain the cohesion between organisms, geology, landscape and land-use.
