The Hungarian puszta - trip to Kecskemet
See your guide: Ildikó V.Spend a day in the legendary Hungarian puszta! The Kiskunsag National Park - just for 1,5 hours trip from Budapest - extends across the most important nature areas between the Danube and Tisza rivers. Much of it are saline plains and sandy lowlands. Water habitats include salt lakes, the backwaters of the Tisza and a series of bogs and marshes. The unique face of the Kiskunság landscape is a combination of lonely farms, animal husbandry and agricultural tradition, closely allied to the natural world, represented by rich and rare flora and fauna. Beside the breathtaking sights of the puszta, tour includes visit of a farmhouse (tanya) as well. where special programs - horseshow, riding and horse-cart ride possibilities and typical Hungarian gastronomy - palinka, wine, Hungrian goulash made in cauldron, stew prepared on open fire and served in marmites - waits for our guests.
The nearby Kecskemet is famous far and wide for the apricot brandy (a real Hungaricum), the colourful Art Nouveau buildings of Kecskemet decorated with ceramics and the Kodály method of musical education.During the walk we see the Fancy Palace, the tile-roofed Town Hall, the 600 year-old Franciscan church of St. Nicholas, the Katona József Theater and the Great Church. The „Cifrapalota" (Fancy Palace) of Kecskemet, ornamented with colourful floral patterns, is an outstanding example of Hungarian Art Nouveau architecture.
Optionally we close the day with the tasting and guided tour of the Zwack Fruit Brandy Distillery, which is a memorable experience for all visitors. Ask for additional offer!
