Szeged

Szeged

Population: 164 000 (2001)



Szeged is located at the confluence of the rivers Maros and Tisza. After the flood in 1879, the town was well planned rebuilt.
Szeged is the fourth biggest city in Hungary, lies on Hungary's south-eastern border.
Due to the high number of sunshine hours annually, Szeged is often called „City of Sunshine".
The name Szeged was first mentioned in 1183, in a document of King Béla III.
Szeged is the higher education center of southern Hungary and has built quite a reputation for itself. Thousands of students study here, many of whom are foreign students from all around the world.
Szeged is one of the centres of food industry in Hungary. The ‘Szegedi Paprika’ and the ‘Pick salami’ (since 1869) are world-famous.

I didn't know that Szeged looked that good, the city looks really really good!

Bank Ban, thank you. Before I saw this thread, all I knew of Szeged before was that it had Dömötör Tower an ancient medieval relic and that it was famous for foodstuffs (csemege) like paprika and salami, and had good festivals at the Szeged cathedral. But I didn't know Szeged was that sophisticated. You've shown me a spectrum and side of Szeged I've never seen before, perhaps Szeged has grown up since I've last been in Hungary 17 years ago.

I've read the medical school in Szeged is highly sought after and there are a lot of foreign applicants and it's very expensive to get in.

Another bit of history I know is that after the big flood of 1879 which was a catastrophic ecological disaster for the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, almost the entire city was destroyed. All of Europe contributed money, help and aid to rebuilding and helping the people of this good city in south Hungary.

I had no idea that Szeged was this beautiful:





















Bank Ban, thanks, you've acquainted me with another great Hungarian city, I've never been to Szeged or Gyula - I had no idea how great looking Szeged was, its a first-rater.

Yeah, Szeged is nice, it also surprised me the first (and unfortunately only) time I was there... It has a very unique flair cities closer to Budapest just lack but Pécs for example doesn't. Cities that used to be (and still are) the capitals of a region all have this, because they couldn't rely on Budapest that much. Moreover, Szeged has a very special atmosphere because of the river crossing it and the constant sunshine (and of course the architecture is also beautiful).
