New Year's Day in Szeged, Info

by fabfava

Hello, to avoid confusion in Budapest I had thought to pass the 'last' s years in a provincial town like Szeged.
I have seen is that the university, so lots of young people. It's worth coming here? The locals speak English? Thanks

well, i can assume that some younger people speak english, but from my experience the more in the countryside you are the less people will use english, especially older people. most older people if they speak a foreign language will know russian or german. so i wouldnt count on too many people speaking english.

I've had two great New Year's Eves in Budapest and I am looking forward to a third. I wouldn't go out to the countryside, though. Too quiet and few people speak English. Budapest has tons of things to do. The first year I hung out with the locals in noisy, packed, crazy Godor listening to gypsy, ska and rock music. The next year we booked a table at a quiet place popular with English speaking expats. Pretty much anything you want, Budapest has it. You might find what you want in Szeged, but the chances are much smaller, especially if you don't speak English.

Maybe I can help you if you tell me what exactly do you want to do with your New Year's Eve?

Travel Tips for Szeged

Danube overflow (inundation)

by codrutz

I have stayed for the third time in Szeged in 2006, while going to Italy. I observed the Danube river being way too overflow, so it covered what it used to be a street along the shore. This way the people can walk right near the river. It is not nice and I don't know for how long this is going on or when the Danube will go back.

SZEGED - THE CITY OF SUNSHINE

by frankyboy5

Szeged offers an experience unequal to any visitor of the city. Its sights, like the Votive church, the Synagogue, the Hero's Arch, the Ferenc Móra Museum all give such a distinct character to the city, that it is safe to say: Szeged is the gem of the Great Plains. The renovated shops, cafés and beautiful buildings of the Karasz street give it a Mediterranean feel, which makes strolling though the downtown area a delight. On the Klauzál square, which virtually splits the pedestrian only street in half, one can enjoy the delicious pastries of the famous Virág confectionary shop.

The city of Szeged existed even during the time of the Roman Empire, where its strategic location was perfect for guard post settlement to guard the gold and salt shipments coming from Dacia. A couple of years before 1274 the settlement advanced to city rank, and become the cultural and economic center of the region. Szeged played an important role during the 15th century in the campaigns lead against the advancing Turkish armies. 1879 was the most dramatic date in the city's history, but it was also the start of the rebirth of Szeged. The flood water of the river Tisza broke through the dams protecting the residence and virtually washed the entire city away. Only 5% of the buildings remained standing!

Szeged is not only famous for its colorful history, the spice paprika and its interesting sights. The University of Szeged with its more than 15 thousand students give the city a youthful atmosphere.

We await every visitor with a warm-hearted welcome and hospitality!

Opusztaszer - an artist going round in circles

by GillianMcLaughlin

Before I leave entirely the subject of the tubular painting in the park, I did glean a couple of pieces of information about the artist, Arpar Feszty, which are worth mentioning in passing.

Our Arpath first discovered the art of Panorama painting during a visit to Paris. He went home to Hungary with the idea of making a huge painting of the Great Flood. It was his father-in-law who pesuaded him that the meeting of the seven tribes would make a more worthy subject for his magnum opus.

The painting hung in Budapest for most of it's life, It was badly damaged during the war and was restored by Polish experts who took 3 years to complete the restoration (1992-1995) longer in fact than it took Feszty to paint it in the first place (1892-1894)! Granted Feszty did have 19 friends to help him!

The painting depicts the conquest of the Magyars and was completed to celebrate the millennium of this event. The location of this conquest however is in some doubt. In fact, when the decision was made to create a park to commemorate the event, two villages fought over the right to host the park!

34 panorama paintings exist in the world. This one ranks very highly in terms of artistic quality by all accounts.

Fountain

by akuku

This is the fountain beside the Catholic Church called Havas Boldogasszony. The inscription on the fountain loosely translated says 'according to the beliefs of our folk, in every grain of wheat, you can see the face of Jesus Christ'.
