Let’s talk about Szeged!
Szeged is a wonderful city for MICE in the Csongrád-Csanád county. Szeged is the third most populous municipality in Hungary with around 160.000 people. It is located near the southern border of Hungary, at the confluence of the rivers Tisza and Maros. It became the seat of Csongrád county in 1962.
Szeged is the sunniest city in Hungary with more than 2,100 hours of sunshine, that is why the city is known as ‘the city of sunshine’. The well-developed network of public transportation (buses, trolley buses and trams) makes it easy to reach any part of the city. There are also many bicycle paths all around the city; a quite popular way to get around for locals.
Szeged is the cultural and sports centre of the Southern Region. The city offers a wide range of activities for tourists and locals. Its museum, the Ferenc Móra Museum, attracts around 350,000 visitors a year. The galleries, cinemas, clubs, and theatres of the city are all excellent entertainment venues. The Szeged Open Air Festival, which is the biggest one in Hungary and held every summer, is a major cultural event.
