Hungary, Szeged Guide (B): Szeged, Hungary, by Adrienn Takacs

Szeged is the third largest and the southernmost city in Hungary. It is the largest city of the Southern Great-Plain and is located at the encounter of two important rivers: the Maros and the Tisza. Beside all these, it is an important cultural center and has one of the most distinguished universities in the country. It is often referred to as the “City of Sunshine” due to the number of sunny hours annually, the highest in Hungary with more than 2100 hours a year.

Getting in can be real easy if you know your options. Szeged has a small airport, however it doesn’t have many international flights, but is perfect for small airplanes or private planes. There’s another way: you can fly to Budapest Ferihegy International Airport and take a car on the M5 highway. The drive is about an hour and a half, so you’ll be at your destination in no time. Also, you can take a train directly from Budapest Airport to the heart of Szeged, so you don’t have to worry about changing trains (for more information, check out the official MÁV site). There are also buses passing through the most important cities in the country, so even if you’re not staying in Szeged, you can still come and visit in a day trip. ......
