Ópusztaszer Heritage ParkIMG_3997

Ópusztaszer is the cradle of the state of Hungary. Through its history, it strengthens the nation, and gives hope to future generations. According to Hungarian tradition, it was at this place, around 896 AD that Chief Árpád, the Duke of the Magyars and his chieftains (his leading men) pitched up their tents, and codified the common laws of their new country. Thus, today’s Heritage Park is far more than a tourist attraction: it is the place where all Hungarians (Magyars) can turn to in order to strengthen their national identity, to remember and preserve their history, culture, and traditions. Monday closed.

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIn five distinct areas, the Heritage Park:

– Exhibits one of Europe’s largest panorama paintings, the Feszty-panorama: Arrival of the Conquering Hungarians into the Carpathian Basin
– Invites visitors to discover the archeological excavations of a medieval monastery
– Raises awareness and appreciation of nature, and understanding of the history of the region through exhibits in the eco-friendly Csete yurts
– Replicates village life in a living Open Air Museum with 15 reconstructed buildings from the Interwar Period, and
– Offers a visually capturing display of traditional Hungarian horsemanship, including archery, horseback wrestling, racing, and outfits dating back to the time of Genghis Khan and earlier.

 

Good to know:

– it is possible to rent a golf cart to visit the heritage park.
– 500 meter before the entrance of the heritage park there is a nice labyrint for kids.
– Restaurant Szeri Csarda (near the labyrint) is worthy of a recommendation.
