Lovely Duna-Drava National Park is located in the central section of the Danube on the Croatian and Serbian borders. Here you can find protected plant such as the German Tamarisk and important animal species such as the White-Tailed Eagle and the Black Stork. There are lots of programs for visitors to the park and study trails.

A region of the Duna-Drava National Park Beda-Karapncsa includes some of the significant habitats of the South Hungarian Danube reach. Here visitors can see many White-Tailed Eagles and Black Storks. Walks can be taken into gallery forests where lovely flowers bloom. One can see Grey Cattle grazing in the meadows and White Water lilies can be seen on the waters.

While visiting this national park be sure to take a look at the Mohacs Historic Memorial Park. This is a graveyard which was established on the very spot where the Battle of Mohacs too place in 1526. It is located near Satorhely. This is the resting place of over 1700 soldiers. Among the mass graves here are also wooden sculptures and grave marks of King Louis II, Pal Tomori, Dorottya Kanizsai, Sultan Suleiman and several unknown valiants. An exhibition building opened here in 2011.

Another great place to visit is the White Stork Museum. The residents of Kolked which is a settlement near Mohacs have coexisted with storks for many centuries. Here near the Danube floodplain White Storks have a very secure nesting and feeding place. This museum is unique in all of Europe. Here visitors can get to know about the life and migration of White Storks. When breeding season comes around one can get to see the storks in their nests.

Visitors can also enjoy the “Beaver” canoe tour where you can get to know about the wildlife of the Danube floodplain and get to view birds and beavers.

There is the Boki-Danube fishing exhibition where one can learn about the fishing methods and tools of days gone by. At the end of the day you can cook and eat the fish you have caught.

There are also other canoe tours where visitors can get to know the floodplain birds such as the Black Kites, Grey Herons and Common Kingfishers.

There is also the study trail which stretches from the protected Nagy-ret or Great Meadows to the Danube. The route takes visitors past the reconstructed Belestye-fok and on through the restored stone bridge over the Asas. Along this trail you can also observe the native Grey Cattle.
