It's near Debrecen, it's a part of the Great plain. You can see very far away, bacause it't flat, no hills at all. It has lots of special plants and animals. If you like nature and birds, farm animals, you enjoy this area.

The park service offers a 1-1.5 hours long trip on a horse carriage thorough the Puszta. You can watch different animals. Could be a bit more interactive but it is still worth it to visit.

The meal was plentiful and interesting with an emphasis on the food of the Great Hungarian Plain and complemented the Park visit.
