Visit Szeged - Best of Szeged

The third biggest city in Hungary has about 170,000 people. It’s a peaceful university town. The main tourist attractions are the historical buildings, the University of Szeged, the zoo, and the waterpark. Sightseeing wise, Szeged is full of the cutest little streets, quirky restaurants, and some unexpectedly elegant architecture.

Historically, the area has been inhabited since ancient times, and it is suspected that Attila the Hun may have had a seat of power here. It prospered greatly between the 14th and 18th centuries, during the latter half of which it became an Ottoman centre. The town has a gruesome history of with trials. Most of the city today is nothing from those times though; a great flood in the 1879 destroyed more than 90% of the buildings here.

Szeged is internationally famous for its open air theatre, which is held every summer, and is almost a century old now.
