Coming to Hungary and want to explore a bit more than just the capital? Planning to go on a voyage outside of Budapest? Why not to go to Bekescsaba!
This is a photo report from my June adventure trip to Bekescsaba. City, which is located in the South East of Hungary, close to the Romanian border. It has been renowed for the Csabai sausage and other food processing industry products.
Historically, there has been also Slovak settlement and until today, it is possible to see the traces of Slovak ancestry in the streets of Békéscsaba (this is how you write it correctly with Hungarian accents). There is even a Slovak cultural house and a primary and secondary school, which have Slovak as the language of instruction. See more in the attached photo gallery.
Bekescsaba is the home of 2 major events – Beer festival and the Sausage festival. The latter will take place on the 22nd-25th October 2015, so save the date! The beer festival was a full experience as it featured not only zillions of different craft beers, but also pork knee (csülök) parade and promo events of local pan and sofa resellers. Find out more in the photogallery.
Why to set for a trip to Bekescsaba? It is not a tourist trap, it is a cool place to go and the locals are absolutely warm-hearted! Also, the city has won several green awards and I must say, rightfully. I have never seen a greener city!!
How to reach it? There are direct trains to Bekescsaba from Budapest Keleti pályaudvar, the journey takes around 3 hours. You can also go by car via the M5 highway to Kecskemét and then continue on a regional road no. 44 (which is not of the best quality and it is full of Romanian trucks, but reinforces the joy of finally arriving there).
