  • The Gyűrűfű Eco-Village, Hungarian Living Villages 47.162494, 19.503304

    Gyűrűfű Foundation (www.gyurufu.hu) is an independent environmental organisation focusing its activity on the local watershed situated in the southern hills of Zselic. The foundation was registered in 1991, and has no affiliation to any of the political parties or business enterprises except those established by the eco-villagers. The mission of the organisation is to develop a well-founded, realistic and feasible small scale model of human subsistence with an emphasis on environmental and ecological considerations, taking rural areas, hamlets, villages and agricultural farms as the first priority.

  • Cultural landscape

    At the time the Hungarians came into the Carpathian-basin (in the 9th and 10th century), the land has still preserved its original, pristine state: the settlement area was characterised by wooded steppe on the Great Plain and oak forests in the hillsides. Transformation of the native landscape was initially represented mainly by deforestation: primarily land for farming was eked out this way in the 10-15th centuries, and timber was felled for early mining operations and industrial activities.
