Nature Trail on the Marshes Egyek-Pusztakócs

Górés Nature Trail and Fekete-rét Nature Trail

 

Location and accessibility:

Starting point GPS: 47.548036, 20.928650

   

 

The marshland of Egyek-Pusztakócs used to cover about 10000 ha, near Ohat-Egyek-Tiszafüred. Due to Tisza river regulations of the l9th century the natural water supply of the marshland was cut off and the flora and fauna of the marshland were forced back into smaller and smaller areas. Thanks to the rehabilitation works of the national park water-movements of the once unregulated river Tisza can be simulated. Birds quickly reoccupied the territory which has become a real waterfowl paradise.

One station of the nature trail is Górés Tanya (Górés Farm) where visitors can read about the history of kurgans (burial mounds) and can see the bird rehabilitation centre.

Passing by Górés Tanya and walking along a channel dam bordered by willow trees, visitors can reach Fekete-rét (Black meadow) nature trail, where the diverse flora and fauna of the marsh can be observed from a boardwalk.

The Meggyes Csárda Inn Museum also situated along the nature trail is a pearl of cultural history.
