Map of the Great Hungarian Plain
Cities of the Great Hungarian Plain

Debrecen is the largest city on the northern Great Hungarian Plain, and the second-largest city in Hungary after Budapest. Until the 19th century, it was the largest city in Hungary, and served as the capital of the country during the Revolution of 1848 and in the immediate aftermath. The Reformed Great Church was the site where Lajos Kossuth issued the proclamation of Hungarian independence. Debrecen is a regional hub of commerce, education, and culture, and is home to the University of Debrecen, the largest university in Hungary.

Szeged is the largest city on the southern Great Hungarian Plain, and the third-largest city in Hungary. Located on the Tisza River, Szeged was believed to be the seat of power of Attila the Hun. It is home to the University of Szeged, the most prestigious Hungarian-language university, whose biological research center was funded in part by UNESCO. Sights in Szeged include Dömötör Tower, the oldest building still standing in town, dating from the 11th century; and the iconic Votive Cathedral of Our Lady of Hungary, one of the largest Catholic churches in the country. Szeged Synagogue is the largest synagogue in Hungary outside Budapest.
Regions of Hungary
Budapest
Budapest, Hungary`s capital, is two cities in one! Buda is on a hill and Pest is on a plain, with both sides separated by the Danube River and connected by four magnificent bridges. Budapest is one of Europe`s most delightful and enjoyable cities. It throbs with life morning, noon and night.
Lake Balaton
Lake Balaton, one of the largest freshwater lakes in Europe, is the second most-popular tourist destination in Hungary after Budapest. Whether you want to enjoy a thermal spa, visit a wildlife preserve, ride a jet ski, laze the day away in a boat, or sun yourself on the shore, there is something to interest everyone.
Transdanubia
Transdanubia comprises roughly the western half of Hungary and includes many popular destinations and sights, such as Pannonhalma Archabbey, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; the cities of Gyor and Pécs; spa towns such as Sarvar and Szekesfehervar; and of course the enduringly popular Lake Balaton.

GREAT HUNGARIAN PLAIN

The Great Hungarian Plain (Alföld) covers a little more than half of the country and most of its eastern and southeastern portions. Rolling hills meet flatlands in areas such as the Tisza River Valley. Szeged, located in the southern portion, is situated on the Tisza River and is home to such points of interest as the iconic Votive Cathedral of Our Lady of Hungary and the University of Szeged, the most prestigious university in Hungary. Debrecen, the principal city of the northern Plain, is the country`s second-largest city, where many key historic moments occurred during the Revolution of 1848 and the quest for Hungarian independence. The largest grassland in Europe, the 288-square-mile Hortobágy National Park, is situated on the Plain; it is Hungary`s oldest national park and also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
