Puszta Tour / Hungarian Great Plain - Central Hungary

Program

Duration: 8 hours

We take you to a full day tour to the so famous Great Plain of Hungary (Puszta). It is the largest flatland of Central Europe, which is about one hour drive far from Budapest.

We drive south from the capital of Hungary and our first stop is at Kecskemét that is considered the capital of the Puszta and is the cultural, economical and administrative centre of the county. There are beautiful richly ornamented ecclesiastical and public buildings, built in different architectural styles as art nouveau, eclectic, romantic and baroque.

After our short sightseeing tour at Kecskemét the excursion will be continued to the colourful, lovely and romantic flatland of Hungary with corn fields, fruit gardens, cow and sheep herds and plenty of horse studs.

Upon arrival at the typical traditional Hungarian farm we are welcomed with Hungarian snaps (pálinka) and home-made salted cake (pogácsa). We take you to a horse carriage ride first, then we participate in a unique horse show – you will see for example how a man can ride 5 to 11 horses at the same time.

The program is followed by a traditional Hungarian 3-course lunch and wine of the house accompanied with gipsy music.

After the contentful program we return to Budapest.

This tour is ideal for those who like the nature and the animals. Recommended for families with kids but not for those who have allergy to hair of animals.

(IN THE program)

Kecskemét – the capital of Bács-Kiskun County – fusing all the beauty and values of the Great Plain is situated in the middle of Hungary, approximately 85 kms from Budapest. The city – using its favourable geographical location – developed into the economic, administrative, educational, and cultural centre of the region; it gives home for several institutions of fine arts, unique collections, and dignified festivals. The name of the city originates from the word „kecske” (meaning „goat”) and „mét” means district. The goat can be seen in our coat of arms as well above the platform with the motto of our city beneath it: „Neither height, nor depth frightens us.”

Cifra Palace

Cifra Palace

(OPTIONAL PROGRAM)

Varnished tiles, wavy lines, ceramic detail, relief decoration and a profusion of colour - this palace is a splendid example of the Art Nouveau style that emerged in the 20C. Venture inside - the palace is home to the town's modern art gallery with some fine works by 20C Hungarian artists. The former games room now known as the Great Hall is definitely worth a look for its amazing fresco of plants and peacocks on a blue background of stucco waves.
