The Zselic Landscape Protection area hides many natural treasures - the night sky is one of them. The area became internationally recognized in 2009 when the title of Dark-Sky (or Starry Sky) Park was awarded by the International Dak Sky Association. Zselic Park of Stars consists of a public observatory, a 25 m tall wooden belvedere, and resting points in the forest.
The Zselic Park of Stars offers unforgettable experiences to all visitors who are interested in developing scientific understanding of nature and the universe surrounding it. Visitors may learn about the natural treasures of the Zselic region, the forest and water habitats and the wonders of the sky, such as the Milky Way and the view of zodiac lights (which are not at all or only barely visible from light pollution areas) during the day and at night, within the framework of individual, family or school programmes.
