The contiguous floodplain forest
The largest contiguous floodplain forest in Hungary and all of Europe is a protected site. Its unique ecosystem is under strict protection, but is open to visitors. Located 130 kilometres south of Budapest, between Szekszárd and Baja, the forest is accessible by car or railway, and you can spend several days in one of the forest houses. Exotic waterfowl, roe deer, wild boar, red deer with world-record sized antlers, shady shores and hidden backwaters await you. The romantic wilderness can also be traversed by bicycle, canoe, on foot, or even on a narrow-gauge forest railway. Individuals and organised tour groups are both welcome and any equipment you need can be rented from the Pörböly Ecotourism Centre at the southern entrance to the forest.
