Bács-Kiskun is located between the Danube and Tisza rivers in southern Hungary. It is one of the largest in the country and at the same time the least populated. It is a lowland, flat country, covered with puszka and arable fields. Among them you can see small towns in which traditional buildings have survived.
The capital of the region is Kecskemét, a city famous for its Baroque and Art Nouveau architecture. You can see here, among others several churches of different denominations, a Neo-Moorish synagogue and beautifully decorated tenement houses from the beginning of the 20th century. There are also numerous museums, including naive art, ceramics, instruments or contemporary art.
Other cities in the region are small and very similar. Buildings dominating here are adjoining houses with sloping roofs. In many, Baroque Catholic and Calvinist churches, as well as town halls and public buildings from the beginning of the 20th century have been preserved.
Bács-Kiskun's wealth is nature. There are vast areas of the puszta, where cattle and horse breeders still farm. In the endless, flat landscape you can see duel farms and their ruins here and there. In recent years, rural tourism and agritourism have been growing more and more here.
An interesting place in terms of nature is the Dunapataj reserve with a small lake and swamps inhabited by bird colonies. In turn, Lake Vedkert is a place of rest on the water, with beaches, campsites and resorts. You can also use the thermal baths scattered throughout the region, among others in Kiskumajsa, Kiskunfélegyháza, Kalocsa and Kiskőrös.
