Debrecen Things to Do: 20 reviews and 42 photos


Hortobágy is more renowned for its herdsmen than for its natural beauty. The herdsmen are the symbol of the 'puszta', freedom and the natural way of life. They are more than simply the representatives of a vocation, they are the emblem of the 'puszta' and of course a tourist sight. No wonder they are a very proud group of people.
The systematic horse-breeding reaches back to the 17th century. The Nonius horses were first bred in 1885. The stud of Hortobágy is today the biggest hot-blooded farm in Hungary. The thick mane of the horses, their elegant gate, their overwhelming neigh remind us of the former more nature-close life we all shared.
