Hortobágy National Park - the Puszta,Hungary.

Located on the Great Hungarian Plain in the eastern part of Hungary,it  is an outstanding example of a cultural landscape which preserves intact the visible evidence of its traditional pastoral use over more than two millennia  It also represents the harmonious interaction between people and nature. The Puszta consists of vast plains where specific land-use practices such as animal husbandry, including grazing of  livestock  adapted to the natural conditions of alkaline pastures, steppes, meadows and wetlands.
Significant scientific discoveries made since the inscription of the property attest that treeless alkaline grasslands dominated the landscape from the end of the Pleistocene period. The open character  suitable for animal grazing practices, presented adequate conditions for the settlement of population in the region.
2013 The 100th Anniversary of the Birth of Dr Miklós Ujváros stamp affixed on the card.
Thank you Werner from Germany who sent this card from Hungary.
Date of Inscription: 1999
Ref: 474rev
