Considered part of the World Heritage since 1999 the area encompasses the Hortobágy and most of Greater Cumania (Nagykunság). In addition to the natural landscape the architectural heritage is characteristic of the area. Examples include the Nine Hole Bridge (Kilenclyukú-híd), the Hortobágyi Inn and the Shepherd Museum (Pásztormúzeum) which preserves the memories and traditions of shepherding.

The Hortobágy and its region are the warmest part of Hajdú-Bihar County. The daily temperature fluctuation is great as burningly hot days are made bearable by the refreshingly cool nights.
