Hungría

Descripción

Hungary - by Molo

Hungarians enjoy walking. In this tidy country the scenery may appear to be somewhat monotonous. Apart from the hill country in the north, with Kékestetö (1014m) as highest mountain, all is rather flat. All the same, there are 11000km of marked hiking trails!

Much walking is done in national parks. Most famous is Hortobágy Puszta Park, the ultimate plain so to say, and consequently declared World Heritage Site. Another is Bükk National Park, an area of mountains and forests in the north of Hungary. Also great for hiking is the northern karst region of Aggtelek National Park, where you can go underground as well.

Of the 11000 kilometers of hiking trails, 2500 have been marked as Blue Trail. These Blue Trails or Kéktúra in Hungarian, lead right across the country and coincide with European long distance trails E3, E4 and E7. The original Blue Tour is said to be the oldest long distance hiking trail of the European continent. It dates back to 1938 and was laid out to commemorate the 900th anniversary of the death of King St. Stephen, first king of Hungary. Good reason for celebration of course. The current 1128km long route strings together all hilly ranges and touches on Lake Balaton. On the way you can collect 147 stamps at so-called check-points, often in railway stations etc. You are kindly requested to address the local officials in a friendly manner for a stamp, and the official website advises as follows: "It is useful (and advised) to carry an ink pad with you along your hikes, because the inking of the official stampers can not be guaranteed." Also forests, and with it portions of the trail, may suddenly be cut down and cleared.

A few practicalities: excellent topographical maps and guides are available. Bring a tent, and swimsuit/trunks, because Hungarians build the best swimming pools in Europe.

  • Positivo Trails are well marked. In the wooded hills along the Blue route there are look out towers to see above the trees, also ruined castles, museum villages, little bars in every village etc.. In the Great Plains there are huge fields of sunflowers, forests and meadows full of flowers. Hungarian food is good try the cold fruit soup, the pastry snacks, paprika chicken and dumplings.
  • Negativo The landscape is not dramatic as in the Alps, and there are a lot of trees. In summer mosquitoes can be an issue. Accommodation can be difficult to find in some areas, but wild camping in forests is legal.
  • Oranginas, long distance hiking trails Europe Abril 1998

  • Positivo Matra mountains: a protected area. Steep, rugged slopes, screes, talus slopes and -slides; dense beech forests. Vulcanic zone. Rich flora and fauna. Beautiful valleys. Vineyards at the foot of the mountain range.
  • Negativo When we walked there (1998) we could not find the routes. Accommodation was rare. Perhaps our preparation was not enough. Meanwhile - we heard - there are plenty of well marked trails and good maps.
