Tiszafured - Hungary

Tiszafüred is a town in Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok county, in the Northern Great Plain region of central Hungary and is the biggest city of the Lake Tisza region. From here you can visit Hortobagy, a national park in Eastern Hungary in the heart of the Puszta. Almost 1400 square kilometres in size, it is a steppe, a grassy plain with cattle, sheep, oxen, and horses, tended by herdsmen, providing habitat for various species (342 bird species have been documented, including the Common Crane, Dotterel, Stone Curlew and Great Bustard). 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.
