About the city

Szeged is the third largest city of Hungary. The University of Szeged is one of the most distinguished universities in Hungary.

The famous Open Air Plays of Szeged, first held in 1931, are one of the main attractions; which are held every summer celebrated as the Day of the City on May 21.

Main sights of Szeged include the city centre with the Votive Church, the Church of Grey Friars, the Water Tower, the Domotor Tower, Reok Palace, and the National Theatre of Szeged, among others. Szeged was also the European Capital of Culture in 2010, along with Pecs.

In 1879, Szeged was completely destroyed. The country and world united to rebuild the town; the fruit of this international collaboration and of the will of the inhabitants was the establishment of the town as it is now.

With its boulevards and avenues and its elegant mansions, Szeged is the most beautiful and most well-ordered town in Hungary. A look at the map shows the regular, organised plan laid out with ruler and compass. And looking closely at the street names you can see that the main boulevard features the names of Rome, Brussels, Berlin, Paris, London, Moscow, and Vienna, recalling the donations made.
