Those interested can discover 194 nature trails throughout the country. Almost all of the hiking trails lead through a protected area and offer a unique experience, said Minister of Agriculture István Nagy.
Bertalan Balczó, Deputy State Secretary for Nature Conservation at the Ministry, emphasized that the national park directorates are implementing investments aimed at habitat development on more than 100,000 hectares. Since 2014, a total of HUF 16 billion has been spent on ecotourism investments. Thanks to this, educational trails have been established and renewed nationwide, he added.
In Hungary, most such trails can be visited free of charge, and in addition to various info signs and paper-based publications, many routes can be explored using mobile applications as well.
Thanks to the network of these trails, people can learn more about Hungary’s natural treasures, including the flora and fauna of its rocky grasslands, saline steppes, lakes, floodplain areas, the birds and flora in its marshes, basalt columns and dolomite formations — not to mention, they can also enjoy Hungary’s many unique panoramas.
