Spend time in Szeged, a city situated near the southern border of Hungary on the banks of the Tisza River. With a population of 177,000, Szeged is the cultural and economic center of southeastern Hungary, yet maintains the atmosphere of a comfortable college town. Szeged is famous for its open-air theater, and its opera is second in reputation only to the one in Budapest. The Hungarian Studies Program at the University of Szeged gives students a thorough introduction to Hungarian language and culture by offering courses in the humanities and social sciences.
