Area: 74.865 ha

The World Heritage Site officially named as the ‘Hortobágy National Park – the Puszta' is not identical with the actual area of the Hortobágy National Park. The reason is that the national park has been expanding since the World Heritage designation, but the WHS only comprises the original area.
