About Hortobágy: Hortobágy National Park is the first national park in Hungary and has been inscribed into the World Heritage List by UNESCO in 1999. Hungary's first national park has been inscribed to the World Heritage List as a cultural landscape since 1999. The Hortobágy, a landscape shaped by pastoral societies is an outstanding example of the 2000-year long harmonious interaction between nature and human beings. The Hortobágy is Europe's largest coherent natural grassland and Hungary's most extended nature protection area covering more than two thousand square kilometers.

Hortobágy National Park is the only one where farming is still alive. Besides traditional outdoor stock raising – grey cattle, 'racka' sheep, 'mangalica' pig, buffalo and sport horse breeding serves the purposes of gene preservation – the world's largest fishpond system can also be found in the Hortobágy. The most famous bird of the landscape is crane, a flock of about fifty thousand birds cover the grasslands in every spring and autumn; this episode of their migration is a world famous spectacle. Besides cranes other characteristic birds of the Hortobágy are wild geese, coots, crakes, herons, stone curlews and the rare great bustard. Typical predators are imperial eagles, red-footed falcons and hawks nestling in the periphery of the grasslands. This rich flora and fauna constitute a unique biome.
