Terrain: The competition terrain is located in the North-western corner of the sand-dune ridge between the Danube and Tisza rivers at a height of 110-115 meters above sea level. The surface sand is bound by vegetation. The dunes created by the wind produced an area of varied relief. The terrain consists of semi-open areas with rich contour details, and forested areas with good run-ability. 

The terrain has never been used for orienteering before!
