Entirely untouched by foreign tourism
be careful about the public officers ( especially on buses) they can be rude
Nice scenary on the way!
This museum takes you through a voyage of discovery, covering the family background of Mark Pick, the process of butchering and the actual stages of production of salami. We discover, amongst other things that, until around 10 years ago, Picks produced pork salami, and also a Kosher variety made from beef. The beef production halted in the 1990’s...more
Pick’s salami are prize-winning. One of the most stylish exhibits (curiously hidden under a butcher’s block, is this great certificate awarded in the 1935 universal fair in 1935. I just love that art deco style! The website for the factory is a true tribute to the art of the salami. Amongst other things you can consult a host of suggestions about...more
I have long appreciated the rich and spicy flavour of Hungarian paprika, and on this trip I had the chance to find out all about its production. Just a short walk upstairs from the Pick salami factory we are taken through the laborious process of producing some of the finest paprika in the world.This museum has been put together with all the care...more

It has a large outdoor terrace for summer dining that has a bucolic river view of the Tisza River. The restaurant makes it name serving local seafood. (actually fresh water fish) Unlike the typical like seafood cuisine that...more
This restaurant is a traditional Hungarian tavern, or csárda, that specializes in fish dishes. Sitting at an outdoor table with a view of the Tisza River and the nice streets of Szeged while having the best fish soup in Europe is a great way to spend an afternoon. Some of the dishes are a little bit more expensive than other restaurants, but it is...more
Inside the pension Illés Panzió there is this restaurant, just downstairs - outside in a perfect surrounding (I doubt what they do in the winter, when it's too cold - probably go down to the breakfast cellar).This restaurant is specializing in hunting meat, you can get great portions of boar and deer but also more 'regular' Hungarian food - all...more

It's a very trendy, full and noisy place. In the summer you can sit (or stand) outside and see a mixture of locals and tourists. Quite friendly. They also serve food although I didn't try it.Ah - and they have a free, open internet wi-fi. So you can sit even next to it and check your mail.more
From Szeged to Subotica there is a bus every around 2 hours. The bus ride takes 1.5 hours. It's not so far from Szeged to Subotica but the border control will take a while and the bus goes into some small villages in Serbia and makes a detour before landing at the bus station in Subotica.The bus was air-conditioned but the driver did not switch it...more
Inside Szeged you can take the trolley busses or some tram lines.Unfortunately it's not great service and I find it overpriced. A single ticket costs 220 Forint, which is around a euro and this is only if you buy it in advance. From the driver it will cost you 270 Forint.And the worst - if you have to change a bus/trolley/etc - because they don't...more

Trains are available hourly from 6:12am till 9:12pm (at...more
These hand made embroided slippers used to be made in over 40 workshops around the area. However, only two elderly men make them anymore. They come mainly in red, black and blue. The flowers on the slippers are usually white flowers such as poppies and forget me nots. The slippers are similar but each one is hand made and therefore one of a kind.
The archeological findings of human inhabitants go back as early as the Stone-age. During Roman times the area was inhabited by the jazig tribe (from 0-270 AD). The town then was an important bridge to the province of Dacia, named Partiscum. The outpost's purpose was to look after the salt and gold shipments coming down the Maros river. During the...more

The river Tisza has played a crucial role in the creation of Szeged and in its history. It continues to do so! Please take note of the driving warnings like this one!
The river was in serious flood at the time I visited, and a main riverside road was under water. As a result, the warning signs like this one were surplus to requirements.
Warning! Skidding less likely than drowning!
The National History memorial Park is home to a remarkable work of art. One of only 18 remaining in Europe the Feszty Panorama is a late romantic style painting depicting the bloody and brutal foundation of the Hungarian nation. Not much to surprise so far I hear you cry!Hang on a moment!The dimensions of this painting read as follows: The 120m...more
The castle was built parallel to the river Tisza with an irregular layout but roughly rectangular in shape. On every corner of the castle stood a circular tower built for defensive purposes, and the walls on every side were also fitted with rectangular towers. The castle’s palace was situated west of the southern gate and was turned into an...more
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...more
This is a view of a small part of Szeged - you can see the Votive Church in the background, and the overflow Danube covering the street. Szeged is a quiet city, it also has an university, not much happen there, but you can check http://www.szegedportal.hu/ for more what to do'smore
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.more
On the banks of the river Tisza there is a small collection of houses on stilts. I was fascinated by them when I spotted then from the opposite bank of the river. My hosts explained that they were used mainly by people as holiday homes. Many of the owners are actually locals and they come down to stay on the river in the summer, in an effort to...more
