Hungary – Hortobágy National Park – the Puszta

Do you get more excited about visiting a place when you find out that it is part of the UNESCO World Heritage? Well, we definitely do, because the certification proves that the given site is of immense value. Listed below you find our 8 Hungarian World Heritage Sites and also the reasons why they are special

According to vilagorokseg.hu, Hungary joined the World Heritage Convention in 1985 and included the conditions in the Hungarian rule of law in the form of a statutory rule. Two years later, the World Heritage Committee decided on the first Hungarian sites to be added to the collection.

Since the summer of 2002, Hungary is the proud owner of 8 World Heritage sites. Out of them, seven belong to the ‘cultural’ category while one is listed in the ‘natural’ category. We share two of the sites (Caves of Aggtelek Karst and Slovak Karst, Fertő/ Neusiedlersee Cultural Landscape) with our neighbours, Slovakia and Austria.
