Spend an unforgettable day in the Puszta! The Puszta or Great Hungarian Plain is covered with large ranches, and Magyar cowboys demonstrate their equestrian skills in the show.  UNESCO declared part of the Puszta, the  Hortobágy National Park, a World Heritage Site in 1999. Visit the city of Kecskemét to see some nice examples for Hungarian Art Nouveau.Enjoy a traditional horse show and a carriage ride in the Puszta and have a tasty three-course lunch with the hungarian apricot brandy (pálinka) accompanied by Hungarian gipsy music.
We star from your Hotel in Budapest. In an hour's drive from Budapest we stop at Kecskemét. We walk around the beautiful downtown (guided walk) and show you the most important tourist attractions, like the Art Nouveau City Hall, the Theatre, the former Synagogue and some churches. From Kecskemét we drive to a traditional Hungarian farm where you can taste the famous Hungarian welcome drink, "barackpálinka" (apricot brandy) and the "pogácsa" (salty scone). There is an opportunity for taking a carriage ride as well. The program continues with a traditional horse show with several breathtaking elements. The entertainment at the Magyar cowboy horse show starts with a horse parade, followed by all sorts of exercises that were once practiced for wartime, but today are just for show. The top moment of the show is a complicated twist to the Hungarian five-horse racing, more commonly known as the "Puszta-five". Then you are invited for a three-course lunch including the famous Hungarian goulash soup, accompanied by Hungarian gipsy music.
