Ipoly Valley

<p class="Norml1" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="FR">The aquatic habitat of more than 2,300 hectares was added to the list of Ramsar Sites in 2001.</span></p>

One of the namesakes of our national park looks like an insignificant watercourse during most of the year, but the people living here are well aware that the honorary title that made the Ipoly the most capricious river in our country is real. There is an almost nine-hundred-fold difference between low water and flood water flow, with only the Tisza producing more in the Carpathian basin.

In the Ipoly valley, we carry out extensive meadow farming with our own grazing livestock, which also ensures the genetic preservation of the native Hungarian gray cattle.

Together with our Slovak partners, we are trying to present the diverse and admirable natural values ​​of the Ipoly valley to receptive and sensitive interested parties on several nature trails. The crowds of birds swarming the spring floods are aided by observation towers and designated routes that can even be traveled by bicycle to get to know the life of the summer mowers.
