Dom Square

Reviewed By Hari S

One of the most beautyful spuare in Hungary (in Middle Europa).
Architectually fully unique and built in the same style.
It was built in the 1930's, from brown bricks.
Most of the buildings belong to the University of Szeged.
There is a special clock in the square , it has got small figures and it plays music .
In front of the clock is the Votive Church.
Around the square you can see the shilds of Hungarian Counties.
If you visit Szeged the square is one of the "obligatory" place to see!

Mora Ferenc Muzeum

Reviewed By Gabriel H - Bellaire, Texas, United States

This museum is located right on the shore of the river Tisza in downtown Szeged. The classical Greek style favored by many museums is also present here. There is a broad staircase leading to the second floor entrance; in front of it, there is an elaborate Fountain that was either turned off or non-functional when we visited. The inside shows an elaborate let-19th century decorative style, with stone carvings, frescoes and again a double staircase reminiscent of Vienna palaces. There is a nominal entrance fee. The first floor focuses on regional archaeology, anthropology and history. It is probably the most informative part of the museum. There are ongoing archaeological explorations in the region that have added a ton of new information to Hungarian history and the pre-Hungarian settlers of the area. The new information is nicely curated and presented and it is well worth an hour or two of your time. There was also an exhibit of gold objects and their role in history. This was more eye-catching, although less novel. There are visual arts in the main exhibit hall on the first floor and again on the second floor. There are huge canvases depicting the initial conquest of Hungary by the seven Hungarian tribes more than a thousand years ago (by Munkacsy) and a colossal scene of the devastating flood that annihilated Szeged in 1879 (by Pal Vago). There are other works by prominent Hungarian painters. The second floor also has a hands-on children's museum that looks quite creative.
