CNN notes that the stars of the night skies are necessary for traditional Hungarian shepherds, who rely heavily on their knowledge of stars and constellations.

CNN also highlights Zselic Starry Sky Park (202 km southwest of Budapest), a dark-sky preserve which it says is one of the best places in Europe to see zodiacal light. The phenomenon can be seen best during spring and fall. Stargazers can follow a sky map or take a guide on a "star walk" program in Zselic, CNN adds.
