|A Walk in the refreshing meadows
It is worth starting to study this area in Drávaszentes, where a teaching and visitor centre has been built. The building was planned by architect Sándor Dévényi and includes a lecture room for 80, accommodation, offices and a 13-metre high lookout-tower. The Refreshing Meadows Study Trail begins from the centre and ends at the ornithological lookout-tower and provides an insight into local wildlife. During the course of the walk the visitor will meet with the large herd of long-horned grey cattle belonging to the Danube-Dráva National Park. On the meadows of the visitor centre indigenous animal species are presented in a show farm.
Thanks to the Dráva Project the centre has been extended and an interactive nature-study exhibition has been included in the 300m2 attic showing the wildlife of the riverside and its varied landscape. A tree has been placed amongst the maps and models and a giant eagle's nest, which can be climbed into by the younger generation. The Three Rivers Cycle Route passes the visitors Centre and the National Park authorities have provided 45 bicycles for use by visitors.
