Békéscsaba



 

Situated in the South Great Plain Region, Békéscsaba is the seat of Békés County, and the cultural centre for the Slovakian minority. Slovakian settlers were introduced into the area  to counter the depopulation caused by the Turkish occupation.

The city’s Slovakian House of Regional Folk Art displays the lifestyle of the wealthier peasants in the 19th century.

The city’s most well-known historic building is the Classicist style, 19th century Lutheran Church – the largest such church in the country.

The Munkácsy Museum, in addition to the famous painter’s works, also has exhibitions  featuring the local region.

Békéscsaba is famous for its “Csabai” sausage - its popular “Sausage Festival” is held each year in autumn.

The city’s bathing complex also attracts many visitors.
