Recreation in the area

Tiszakürt Arboretum and Adventure Park


Here the rain on the Tisza is less (520 mm) than in the western parts of the country, so the gloomy weather in Budapest or Transdanubia should not deter us from a trip to the arboretum in the Tisza region. Although the collection holds something new for every season and day, the most suitable place to visit is May, which dresses the arboretum in a flower robe, and mid-October, which brings gorgeous foliage.

The only adventure park in the country was opened in 2009 in the area of ​​the Tiszakürt Arboretum, which awaits its dear guests in a picturesque, well-kept Arboretum.


Adventure Park


In the adventure park designed universally (for children and adults), we offer such unique entertainment in a picturesque, special location in the area of ​​the Tiszakürt Arboretum, which can make a class trip and a study walk an unforgettable experience.
The children can test their skills and courage with alpine technical insurance and qualified animators.
The adventure park includes an archery course, a high-altitude rope course and a wire ride.

Tisza flowering


Every year around mid-June, we can admire the special wedding dance of the applicants for only a few days.
The species that once spread across Europe has now disappeared from most of the continent. In Hungary, it lives in large numbers only in the Tisza and its tributaries.
A female usually lays 7-8,000 eggs on the surface of the water, which begin their larval life by sinking to the bottom. The larvae drill themselves into the clayey subsoil and feed on the organic debris of the mud. Their individual development lasts for 3 years, during which approx. They shed 20 times. The growth of larvae is highly temperature dependent. Its completion triggers the swarming, which is most undisturbed in warm, windless weather.
Their famous swarming begins in the early evening and lasts only a few hours. First, the three-year-old larvae rise to the surface of the water with the help of gas accumulating under their outer cover. Males are the first: they fly ashore and transform into a mating-able image by moulting. During moulting, the beggar is flightless, making it easy to prey on insectivorous birds. In addition to the fact that the flowering of the Tisza is an extremely spectacular event, it also has important ecological significance. They feed on many species of fish, birds and frogs.

Museum in the dungeon


The Museum of Local History in Kunszentmárton, the former prison of Nagykunság, is one of the oldest buildings in the city. The dungeon, although intermittent, served its original purpose from 1782 until 1958. With its garden and ancient walls, it is still a unique spot on the banks of the Körös. With its baroque arched corridors and rooms, its high-ceilinged chapel, it provides a special and quite special space for exhibitions. According to oral tradition, famous outlaws were imprisoned within the prison walls. The locals still like to tell about the adventurous escape of Sándor Rózsa, which was helped by his companions through the tunnel dug into the prison.
