Szeged is the gem of the Great Hungarian Plains – it lies on the south-eastern border of the country, on both banks of the river Tisza, it is the most important city of Csongrád county and serves as a commercial and cultural center of the region.
Szeged offers a unique experience to its visitors: the Votive church, the Synagogue, the Hero's Arch, the Ferenc Móra Museum and numerous other sights give a distinct character to the city. The renovated shops, cafés and beautiful buildings suggest a Mediterranean feeling that makes strolling through the downtown area a delight.
The city of Szeged existed even during the time of the Roman Empire, when its strategic location was perfect for guard post settlements to watch the gold and salt shipments coming from Dacia; the city then played an important role during the 15th century in the campaigns lead against the advancing Turkish armies. 1879 was the most dramatic date in the city's history, but it was also the start of the rebirth of Szeged: the flood water of the river Tisza broke through the dams protecting the residence and washed 95% of the city away.
Szeged is famous for more than its colorful history, the spice paprika and its interesting sights – an interesting youthful atmosphere is given to it by more than 15 thousand students that attend the University of Szeged.
