Duna-Drava National Park
The establishment of the Duna-Drava National Park had to be prepared for several years because it had originally aimed at being a cross-border national park with the former Yugoslavia. The national park was eventually established in 1996 only on the Hungarian side, with more than 49,000 hectares. It consists of large separate units along the Danube from the River Sió to the natural border and along the River Drava. The protected areas comprise a wide range of habitats from open water surfaces through various types of deciduous forests to dry rock grasslands and sandy grasslands. Here people can enjoy river fishing and hiking.
