  • It is a square in which we have several fountains, but with emblematic buildings such as the town hall or the mosque-Church (Dzsámi), very unique for how it saves the Ottoman past but an interesting ensemble that has a more Germanic type character than other Hungarian cities, perhaps by the presence (yet) of population of German origin in the town. Has several cafes with terraces that make the place an ideal location for sightseeing and enjoying moments.

  • A colour, which dazzle any ideérkezőt. It is not enough to look at once, because you always know something new. Just the other day to visit and will be a completely different experience.
