Kecskemét



 

Located in the centre of the country, on the South Great Plain, Kecskemét is the seat of Bács-Kiskun County.

The city’s distinguishing feature is the dominance of its Secession style buildings.

The Secession style Town Hall, built at the end of the 19th century, has a carillon which plays a tune composed by its famous native son –Zoltán Kodály.

The “Cifrapalota” (Cifra Palace), an early 20th century Secessionist creation, is clad with majolica and mosaic ornamentation.

One of the buildings which characterises Kecskemét, is the Late-Baroque style, “Main-” or “Old-” Church.

The Zoltán Kodály Institute of Music, in the 18th century, former Franciscan monastery, teaches music at a tertiary level to students from all parts of the globe.
