Tourism in Szeged

Szeged, Hungary’s third-largest city, is a town in Southeast Hungary renowned as “the city of sunshine” for its wonderful weather, as well as for the majestic cathedral, a richness of Art Nouveau and historicist structures, and for the fish soup Halászlé.

Szeged is located on Hungary’s southern-eastern border, just south of the mouth of the Maros River, on both sides of the Tisza River. The M5 route takes you roughly 171 kilometers south of Budapest. It is the city with the lowest elevation in the nation and is renowned as the “City of Sunshine” since it has the most sunny days throughout the year. Szeged is the county seat of Csongrád and serves as the region’s business and cultural hub. According to 2011 figures, the city had a population of roughly 170.000 people.

Its delectable fish soup is famous across the globe, and it even has its own festival in September. The River Tisza, which provides various water activities and boat cruises, is one of Szeged’s primary attractions. Despite its hundreds of years of history, Szeged was rebuilt nearly completely following the flood of 1879, which devastated the majority of the city. Szeged is now one of the most attractive cities in Hungary, with its avenues, ring roads, and stunning palaces.
