The Duna-Dráva National Park was established along the Danube and Dráva rivers, covering an area of some 50.000 hectares. Water played the main role in the formation of its natural landscape. The two rivers and their water resulted in the development of a great variety of habitats, where a colourful ecosystem can be found. Almost the whole of the national park is located in an area, which was formerly a flood-plain.
