    Nagyboldogaszony Church Jaszbereny memorial plaque


    I found this plaque outside the church which
    gives the name of the 2 architects who rebuilt
    the church in (Someone please tell me if they can
    guess the date on the plaque?) ???? by
    Andras Mayerhoffer and Joszef Jung, the names
    sound more like Hungarian Jewish names than
    Jasz or typical Hungarian.

    Monument outside the church

    There were several monuments
    outside the church, one was a World War 1
    memorial. There is also a fountain with frogs
    gushing water out of their mouths.


    Some more history about the church..

    After Jász people had settled down here the
    Franciscan monks converted them to the Catholic faith,
    and the monks were the first to build a church here
    in 1472 which was then followed by a monastery.
    The Turks devastated it and set fire to it, and then
    in 1586 converted the church into a plank-fence castle.

    The Franciscan monks returned in 1690, rebuilt their
    church and built an adjoining monastery in 1730.
    It gained its current baroque character in 1802.

    There was a beautiful park with lots of trees and benches
    where lots of the elderly and young come to relax.
    The temprature was +37 degrees warm on the day
    we were there so the shade of the trees was more than
    welcome.

    the Nagyboldogaszony Church (Church of the Virgin Mary)


    One of the most famous churches in the region and
    well worth a visit. Situated in Lehel Vezer Square.
    he actual date when the church was built is
    not known but it was already mentioned in documents
    dated from 1332.
    The church was originally built in a Gothic style
    but the present building is pure baroque in style.

    Unfortunately being a non touristy town and for fear
    of thieves the church was locked inside with these beautiful
    iron gates.

    Gastronomic Roaming in the Northern Great Plains

    Gastronomic Roaming in the Northern Great Plain

    A real tourist would go not only sightseeing but also "tasting" the typical flavours of the region visited.
    The northern region of the Great Plain will offer you delicious specialities and culinary delights. Excellent gastronomic events are organized by the settlements of the region and you can be sure to find lots of dishes to your taste.
    In addition to tasting opportunities you can get acquainted with the ways of preparing the dishes you have enjoyed.
    In the Hajdúság Region the tasting of the pork rib soup called orja with Bihar county horseradish added to the boiled meat is indeed a must. Other dishes not to be neglected are the shlambuts (potatoes stewed in paprika with noodles) and the kettle goulash. Who has not heard of the dumpling soup of the Nyírség Region? But it is also worth learning the skills of preparing cinke. One of the best dishes in the Nagykúnság Region is mutton stewed in paprika sauce but you must not miss the Tisza fish soup either. These are but a few of the many specialities!
    The northern part of the Great Plain is a rich fruit-growing area, including the Szatmár plums, the Szabolcs apple, the Milota walnut and the squash of Nagydobos. Long rows of acacia trees provide excellent honey. Have you ever tried walnut or squash preserved in honey? Delicious!
    Food tastes better when it is preceded by a gulp of plum brandy from Szatmár. You must not miss it!
