Rövid összeállításunkkal Kalocsára látogatunk, így ezután már nem lesz gond, ha angolul kell erről a városról beszélned!  

Kalocsa, the city of paprika

Kalocsa is famous for its wonderful embroidery, and it is also best known for the Hungarian paprika. However, it has a lot more to offer then these.

Kalocsa is a small Hungarian town with about 15,000 inhabitants. It lies next to the Danube in Bács-Kiskun county, on the Southeast part of the Great Hungarian Plain, about 140 kilometres from Budapest. It has a long historical background since it was founded at the time of the Hungarian conquest of the Carpathian Basin.

Today, it is one of the four Hungarian Roman Catholic Archdiocese. Additionally, Saint Stephen, the first king of Hungary, founded the archdiocese in 1001.

FOLK ART CENTRE

This facility introduces everything in connection with Kalocsa: its unique embroidery, the particular buildings, and the inevitable paprikas. The paprika garlands hanging in front of the windows show that they are not only for eating but they also have cultural importance in Kalocsa. As a result, the embroidery and the paprika make a harmonic decoration in this house.

THE ASSUMPTION CATHEDRAL FROM THE INSIDE

The enormous organ stands in spectacular contrast with the low-key light-coloured walls. This mesmerising cathedral has a baroque style that visitors like to admire for a couple of minutes sitting on the benches in front of the beautiful sanctuary.
