Hungary is a country at the heart of Europe, which stands out in so many ways! Not only its landscape, but also the culture and the people of Hungary show a great variety, in all aspects of everyday life from food to music and architecture.
Wherever you go in the world, you bump into Hungarians. If not personally then through their inventions: Vitamin C, ballpoint pen, Rubik’s cube, safety match... to mention some of the more famous ones...
Being Hungary’s third biggest city, Szeged is the cultural and educational hub of southern Hungary on the bank of River Tisza, often called the “City of Sunshine” due to the high hours of sunlight reported annually. It is a vibrant city of architectural splendour and rich culture which offers you an exciting calendar of events in the whole year.
The list of things waiting to be discovered is infinitely rich so why not start off at the terrace of a cosy café bathing in the sparkling sunshine, ready to be tempted by the magical atmosphere, the eclectic architectural heritage of the city or by the Hungarian cuisine, especially the world famous Szeged fish soup. Let yourself be enchanted by the melodies of the Szeged Symphonic Orchestra, or discover the Art Nouveau palaces in downtown. Visiting the Open-Air Theatre is a must while staying in Szeged, when the Dóm square turns into a stage for theatre shows with the iconic Votive Church behind. And following these adventures if you wish to relax, the Anna Bath with its great Neo-Renaissance building and the Aquapolis, a real water city in the middle of Szeged invites you to relax and refresh.
