Karasz utca

Szeged's main pedestrian street with many architectural masterpieces (for example: Kis Dávid Palota, Eisenstadter House, Várnay House), which can only be walked on foot. At the entrance from Széchenyi Square, stands a bronze pair of people dressed in a Renaissance carnival costume, welcoming the walkers to the pedestrian street. Perfect for strolling, people watching and window-shopping.

Very nice, clean high street. Especially it connects to Szechenyi square which is a nice small park location to sit down under the great ancient trees to hide from the burning sun even at the hot summer heat. Karasz street itself is full with nice terraces, bars, cafés, confectionary, restaurant, pubs.

Szeged Synagogue

Reviewed By 545medva - Budapest, Hungary

If you are in Szeged you must visit this church. It is large and beautiful. The decorations inside and outside are excellent. Around the building there is a small park. The synagogue was built in 1902 and heavily damaged in the II. world war. Today it is done a lot to renovate completely.

Votive Church

Reviewed By Laszlo57

The Votive Church in Szeged is one of the main attractions of the town. It's placed on one end of a large square, where they have summer theater events every year (you should visit a performance is you have a chance). The church itself is not an old one, but it has an atmosphere to it. The walls are not marble covered, but the style and the paintings have some oriental touch. We have visited a mass and the feeling was not much different from that of any famous Gothic cathedrals. If you are in Szeged you should go and visit the the church.

Dom Square

The square with exactly the same area as the Saint Mark Square in Venice (12,000 m2), bordered by elegant, northern European style buildings, was designed by Béla Rerrich and built between 1928 and 1930. On the eastern and southern side there are university institutes, while the western side is lined by the buildings of the bishop’s palace and the college of theology. The National Pantheon, placed under the arcades, includes over a hundred statues representing the prominent characters of Hungarian history, sciences and arts. The Open Air Festival was first held in front of the Votive Church in 1931. In the past decades after the first, religious themed performance, an abundance of theatrical shows have been amusing the audience in the largest “star-roof theatre” in the country.

What a beautiful cathedral. Easily accessed and central to Szeged. We had a good look around inside and out climbed the 300 steps of the tower and visited the visitors center exhibition which was really informative and unusually the hungarian text was also in english. The square in front of the cathedral also houses the famous mechanical clock which was also quite unique and you can see the full clock movement twice a day at 12.15 and 18.45(CET). Check to make sure that it hasn't changed if you are visiting.

Kecskemet Town Hall

Reviewed By laczkozsu - Debrecen, Hungary

This famous building is located in the centre of the town. It has a special architecture with an interesting roof with Zsolnay- ceramics. Outside and inside of the building you can see statues and portrait of Hungarian historic people: leaders and kings. You can hear the chime every hour. We were lucky to go into the main hall where wedding ceremonies are held. We have seen the fantastic paintings on the walls.
