Hortobágy is an 800 km2 national park in eastern Hungary, rich with folklore and cultural history. The park, a part of the Alföld, was designated as a national park in 1973, elected among the World Heritage sites in 1999; the Hortobágy is Hungary's largest protected area, the largest semi-natural grassland in Europe. Until it was believed that this alkaline steppe was formed by the clear cutting of huge forests in the Middle Ages, followed by measures to control the course of the Tisza River resulting in the soil's current structure and pH. However, Hortobágy is much older, with alkalinization estimated to have started ten thousand years ago, when the Tisza first found its way through the Great Hungarian Plain, cutting off many streams from their sources in the Northern Mountains; the formation was finished by grazing animals and wild horses during the Ice Age, followed by domesticated animals. One of its most iconic sites is the Nine-holed Bridge. Traditional T-shaped sweep wells dot the landscape, as well as the occasional mirage of trees shimmering in the reflected heat of the Puszta.
Part of the national park is a dark sky preserve. Hortobágy has had negative connotations. Hortobágy was a place where Hungarian Stalinists sent their political opponents used them as forced labour. Hortobágy is a steppe, a grassy plain with Hungarian Grey cattle, water buffalo, horses tended by herdsmen, it provides habitat for various species including 342 species of birds. The red-footed falcon, stone curlew, great bustard and aquatic warbler are represented by breeding populations; the area is an important stopover site for migrating common cranes and lesser white-fronted geese. Hortobágy is a centre for the breeding of Taurus cattle, one of several ongoing attempts to breed back the aurochs. National symbols of Hungary Gorman, Gerard: The Birds of Hungary. Helm London, UK.
