A Short Stop In The Hungarian City Of Szeged

As I mentioned in the title of this post, we toked last year a very short trip to the beautiful Hungarian city of Szeged. We had only 2 hours to visit the city but despite of this short time, I’ve managed to capture some amazing photos of the city. To those who don’t know, Szeged is the fourth largest city in Hungary and its located in the Eastern part of the country, close to both the Serbian and the Romanian border. When we visited the city, we’ve decided to check out a couple of Szeged’s main sights, among the places that we visited was the city center, Dom ter (“Cathedral Square”) where the Votive church can be found and the Tisza river which flows through the city of Szeged.

The Votive Church in Szeged

This amazing large structure dominates the skyline from miles around and its considered as one of Szeged main attraction, this church is also known as Votive Church of Our Lady of Hungary. The interesting part is that if you take a closer look at the exterior of the Cathedral, you can notice the interesting brick architecture. The construction of the Cathedral started in 1913 and it was finished in 1930 mainly because of the outbreak of the First World War. The small tower in front of the church is called Dömötör tower and its the oldest building in Szeged. The photo below was captured on our way back from the Tisza river.

The Dóm square

Inside the Dom square is located the Votive Church of Our Lady of Hungary which is considered the most beautiful square in the city of Szeged. In the photos below, you can see a small part of the University of Szeged. As you can see in the photo below, you will notice there many interesting sculptures of famous Hungarian poets, artists and scientists.

The Tisza river

The Tisza river cuts the city of Szeged in two. You can take long walks along the river Tisza. In the background of the image you can notice the Szeged’s main bridge across the river Tisza. The place where I toked the photo, is located very closely to the city center.
