Explore the grasslands of the Great Hungarian Plain on a private 8-hour tour of the Puszta. Visit the city of Kecskemét to see some good examples of Hungarian Art Nuevo architecture, and enjoy a traditional horse show and carriage ride.
What to Expect
Spend an unforgettable day in the Puszta, a grassland blome of the Great Hungarian Plain, located around the River Tisza in the eastern part of Hungary.
Your full-day tour starts with a pick-up from your hotel in Budapest. Travel by comfortable vehicle to the glamorous city of Kecskemét, the once busy commercial hub in the center of the grasslands. Enjoy a city stroll to admire the Orthodox churches, picturesque Art Nouveau architecture of Kecskemét’s main square, and more.
Then, drive to a traditional Hungarian farm in the Puszta, admiring a landscape of treeless plains, scattered dunes, and floodplains along the way. Upon arrival at the farm, sample some of Hungary’s legendary pálinka (fruit brandy), as well as a tasty pogácsa (scone).
Next, it’s time to climb aboard a horse and carriage for a ride across the Puszta, and discover how the locals live in their rural homesteads. After a horse show displaying breathtaking traditional horsemanship, end with a 3-course lunch with wine and gypsy music.
