If you only have a single day to explore Szeged, head to the Szeged Votive Church Visitor Centre. The construction of the church – built to commemorate the people who fled from the 1879 flood – was completed in 1930. The colourful stained glass windows were designed by the renowned Hungarian stained glass artist Miksa Róth. The lavish interior includes a real rarity: a mosaic of the Virgin Mary wearing “Szeged” style slippers and a szűr: the traditional fur overcoat worn by Hungarian shepherds. The western steeple of the church doubles as a lookout point.
