Gemenc is one of the most famous protected areas of our country, the largest flood plain forest of Europe, representing an outstanding value internationally too. This amazing territory gets its uniqueness through the harmonious meeting of water and land.

The elk population providing world record trophies, boars and deers are common sights in these parts, but beside big games, wild cats, badgers, foxes, martens, squirrels, otters and beavers can be found too.
