Danube-Drava National Park
Danube-Drava National Park (Duna-Dráva National Park) was founded in 1996 and is located in the south-west of Hungary. It currently covers an area of 50,000 hectares. The majority of the national park sites are located within the Danube and Drava floodplain areas. It is particularly valuable since very few large floodplain habitats have been preserved in Europe. 190 km² of the park are designated Ramsar wetlands.
The two rivers have created a great variety of habitats with second to none biodiversity. The Black stork and White-tailed eagle populations are of European significance. Seven invertebrate species are indigenous to Hungary. Habitats along the Drava host more than 400 protected plants and animals. Species endemic to the national park areas are the Black Hawthorn and the Drava Caddis Fly.
