As we have to take a booked sightseeing carriage in the Hortobágy National Park. We leave the Kunhegyes village and are going to Hortobágy hastily.
Hortobágy is an 800 km2 national park in eastern Hungary, rich with folklore and cultural history. The park, a part of the Great Hungarian Plain, was designated as a national park in 1973, and elected among the World Heritage sites in 1999. The Hortobágy is Hungary’s largest protected area, and the largest semi-natural grassland in Europe.
