    There is beautiful Roman-Chatolic Church at the main square (kossuth ter). It was build at the end of the 18 century in Baroque-Rococo style. It is a tallest building in great plain with the bell of 45 tons.

    It is beautiful Moorish style Synagogue just across the Ornament palace. Moorish style indicates to Berber-Islamic architecture style. I was surprised wen I have walked in to the building, the Synagogue and see like some kind of entertainer center for youth. I don't know, maybe I get it wrong, but it seams like that. This was on the first floor.

    At the second floor there was a exhibition, like a replicas of Michelangelo's sculptures. That was nice to see. Staircase and three circle windows where the most interesting in building.

    Actually I was disappointed that the building has lost main function ....

  • Cifra Palota

    Oh what a piece of cake :) it really looks like a layer cake :) like one the one weddings. Building is also decorated with Zsolnay ceramic details. It has been build in 1902 and it belongs to the secessionist architecture.

    Cifra palota is usually translated as Ornamental palace but I don't think that is the right translation. I don't think that it could be translated to English in right sense at all.

  • City Hall

    My favorite building in Kecskemet is definitely City Hall. it is a mixture of baroque and renaisansse style, and actually it looks like some kind of needlework from my grandmother :)

    The building is decorated with the details of Zsolnay patterns. It is a famous Hungarian producer of ceramics, porcelain, pottery. The manufacture was established in 1800 in Pecs and it still exist. There is a Zsolnay museum in Pecs. I have visit last year since the Pecs was Europian City of culture for 2010.

    What I like most about this building are bells. They don't produce a commonly sound from bell. They are creating some kind of music like a part of classical music concert. It was really nice to take a walk and listen to the music.

  • Take a walk

    My visit to Kecskemet was business nature, but I have steal afternoons for me. Most of the times I have spend in walk and taking some photos since the days where really beautiful. It was an autumn’s time so whole city has dressed in beautiful colours. I just did not want to go inside.

    There is something I especially like about the Hungarian cities and the people. They like to spend time at the squares and in the parks. I love to see people with books who are sitting at the benches, reading some books and enjoying the old and tired autumn’s sun. This is something that my city and my citizens have lost during a time, I don’t know why.

    Kecskemet is not large city so I believe this is why he kept some warm soul of old times. I like the fact that there are no Pubs and Clubs; centre is full of patisseries and cafes, like in old days. I have been in one patisserie that looked like it has not been renovated since the time of Austro-hungary monarcy, and I don’t mean anything bad because it is very neat and clean and lovely. So, take a walk with me ...

  • Central-square and the bells

    by annamantere Written Jul 17, 2003

    You won´t be able to miss the centralsquare. And most likely you´ll hear the townhall bells at some point of your trip. They are playing different melodies, which bring a nice atmosphere to the town.
    It can be a bit annoying though, if staying in the central hotel, as most of the churches in the town have their own bells... so there´s quite a ring going on already early in the morning... but in general it´s nice.

    Historic town centre

    by IngaA Written Mar 13, 2003

    As everywhee, the main attaction is the town centre. Beautiful buidings and small park, which gave a feeling of something alive, not just stone bag, the impression that I had in some medieval cities.
    Kecskemet centre is relaxing, you just feel a wilingness to contemplate.

    In Kecskemet, all monuments and intresting buildings are around a big rectangle shaped central park. One one side you can find the beautiful cityhall (don't forget to go inside!) and the Dom-church. Kecskemet can be seen as a religious centre in Hungary.

    The center of Kecskemet as the center of the world.
    Imre took us to the place where we are standing, it shows Kecskemet as the center of the world. No not really, just the directions to different capitals of the world.

    Unfortunately I spent very little time in Kecskemet. However, I was able to visit the Hungarian Air Force Base while there. It was a great experience that I would recommend to anyone interested in aircraft.
