The most significant city on Hungary's Southern Plain in terms of size and status, Szeged is surprisingly rather underrated when it comes to tourism. This seems a little unjust, since Szeged has so much to offer tourists, with year-round performances at various theatres, opera houses and concert halls, and a rather pretty and appealing city centre, divided by the River Tisza.

Regional center

Szeged from the air

Szeged, the county town of Csongrád County, is in the centre of the South Alföld Region and, together with Pécs, was the European Capital of Culture in 2010. It is the largest town in south-eastern Hungary and is situated at the confluence of the rivers Tisza and Maros. The University of Szeged is one of the most distinguished universities in Hungary.

Dom Square

Szeged Dom Square

A row of famous buildings can be found in the Dom Square (which is as big as Saint Mark’s Square in Venice): the Bishop’s Palace, the Theological College, university buildings, the Catholic Boarding House and the monumental, neo-Roman Bishop’s Cathedral with its 5000 seats, built by survivors of the great flood (1879).


Szegedi fish soup

Szeged is one of the centres of the food industry in Hungary, especially known for its paprika, szekelygulyas, szegedi fish soup and Pick salami. In Hungary you can try different kind of fish but the most popular is szegedi fish soup which is made with Szeged paprika and onion from Mako, a nearby town.
