Zselic Natural Reserve is in south west Hungary and is best known to the rest of the world for its golf course – but off the rolling greens are more rolling green – this time there's the brown stripes of wooded areas as well, and here and there colourful patches of wild flowers.

But one of the real attractions of this region are its night skies – they're so clear you can clearly see Venus, the Milky Way and other stars, planets and solar systems, twinkling above you. The skies here are naturally dark, but the people looking after the park have to work at it as well, there's no upward directing light for miles around – and its not just stargazers that appreciate the effort – migrating birds seem to love this park as well. Simonfa is the nearest settlement if you want to come here for a little golf and stargazing. I wonder if you can try it together...?
