The Arboretum in Puspokladany for me was a total surprise. Puspokladany located in East Hungary near to Hortobagy area. Originally the area was a salty grassland, with a little forest. Entering the area I expect several trees and plants, but after several hundred meters walk I realise that the arboretum is part of a 407 hectare man planted forest. Real jungle can be found here with a 16m high viewpoint, two beautiful lakes, lots of thick vegetation with many birds, and I thought mammals, and other wildlife as well. Because of heavy raining we just check the arboretum area and a little from the outside forest, where the 9km appointed visitor route can be found. Lots of interesting trees and plants can be found in the area. In the forest area a camp is functioning. From the originally planted 1250 different tree and bush species approximately 450 tree and bush species remained. The arboretum area is 8 hectare. The arboretum has been founded in 1954.

History

Alcsut arboretum 3
Prince Jozef has been founded the Alcsut botanical garden in 1820. Arriving from Etyek the truly beautiful big Platan trees on the two sides of the road is the first attraction before Alcsut. The area of Etyek and Alcsutdoboz is beautiful with small hills, green areas, vineyards. The arboretum is a very nice naturally looking huge green area with several buildings, ruins, a lake with not so much artifical object, signs, etc. Although the small parking was full of cars when we arrive, we didn’t really met people in the huge green area. A nearby restaurant is a good possibility after finishing the walk between the beautiful trees, and flowers.

Before we enter the garden the first thing we recognise here is the gate of the arboretum. This gate is a true masterpiece made by Sárossy Tibor. When I first see this gate I become very happy, I just liked it very much. Unfortunately we arrived here to visit in March, this way we cannot see the real potential of this arboretum, next time definitely come back in Spring or Summer. The area is quite huge, with all kinds of plants, flowers and trees. To make the garden more attractive several peacocks are walk in the garden among the visitors. To see this birds is a real adventure with their beautiful colours.(See in the gallery.) At the “back” of the arboretum a beautiful Koros backwater can be find.
