3 V. Cities BUDAPEST V Budapest the pearl of the Danube From Pest-Buda to Budapest In 1998 Budapest celebrated the 125 th anniversary of its foundation, an event when the town of Buda, on the right bank of the Danube, united with the town of Pest on the left side, and the two were joined by Óbuda that is situated north of Buda. The two sides of the united capital have several different features: Buda is dominated by hills and slopes while Pest lies on a plain. In the Middle Ages, Buda played a central role, with its royal residence on Castle Hill. The urban development of Pest started much later in the course of the last century, but today it surpasses Buda both in size, and in the number of inhabitants. The Capital Budapest, with almost two million inhabitants, is by far the most densely populated city, not only in the country, but also in Central Europe. Following the political and economic changes of the 1990s Budapest like other major cities in the region tried to identify a field in which it could become an influental regional center. Budapest cultural and economic strength is mainly due to the central role it plays as the capital of the most dinamically growing country of the region. Every fifth Hungarian citizen lives in Budapest. Over half of the nation s GDP is produced in the capital and all the bankquarters are located here. In the case of certain professions especially intellectual occupations more than 50% of the professionals work in Budapest. Every second university student studies in the capital, and the majority of university professors teach there. The proportion of researchers working in Budapest is even higher. 97

4 V BUDAPEST Foreigners in Budapest Foreigners, both foreign nationals living here and ordinary tourists, are as much a part of the country s history as the river Danube, with its bridges. The burghers of Buda s Castle District were mainly Germans up until the last few centuries, and the Tabán quarter, now a huge park located at the foot of the Castle Hill, was once a village inhabited by Serbs. The area of Erzsébetváros, extending between Rákóczi Street and Andrássy Street, used to be the classical Jewish ghetto quarter before the Holocaust. Much of Budapest s cultural heritage is of foreign origin: in its golden age the Royal Castle bustled with renaissance artists, the main building of the Nyugati pályaudvar (Western Railway Station) today, a public monument was designed by Gustave Eiffel. The City of Diversity Budapest is an extremely versatile city both in time and space. Due to the devastation brought by various floods, fires, wars and revolutions, the city has had to be virtually rebuilt nearly every 50 years (some refer to Budapest as the city of survival). As a result, every period has left its mark on the city. During a lengthier stay it is definitely worthwhile to take a stroll to the burial monument of Gül baba, to get a feel for the Turkish atmosphere. Similarly, a walk on the rustic streets of the Castle- District is a must: be sure to take a peek inside the baroque courtyards! The rapid development at the turn of the century that transformed Budapest into a metropolis can best be witnessed by walking along Andrássy Street or one of the Körúts (Boulvards). Once you have had enough of the noisy metropolis, go up to Rózsadomb, perhaps the most famous of Budapest s villa-quarters, for a bit of old-fashioned peace. Once there, why not take a longer walk along the slopes, and forests of the Buda Hills. And to return to nature without leaving the city, take a walk in Budapest s largest park, the City Park (Városliget). 98

5 BUDAPEST V The Universities Budapest s first university was founded in Óbuda, as early as the 15 th century. The 150 years of Turkish occupation delayed the emergence of modern universities until the Baroque age (from the 17 th century on). In the 19 th century medicine, arts and theology were taught at the city s universities. Technical education began in the second half of that century, and commercial and economic training were introduced later. The unique historical development of Budapest s universities has resulted in the fact that no separate university style quarter or American type campuses can be found in the city. Most of the universities and colleges are located in the city centre. The epicentre of the universities, if one were interested in such a thing, would be located approximately opposite the Gellért Hill, on the Pest side of the Szabadság Bridge. Here you will find a university within a hundred metres stroll in any direction. If you go south, along the bank of the Danube, you will immediately see the Faculty of Economics of the University of Economics and Public Administration. Crossing over to Buda, you will run into one of countless buildings belonging to the Technical and Economic University. A bit further can be found the new building of the Eötvös Loránd University Faculty of Science. Finally, the route towards Kálvin Square is rich in seats of learning: you will encounter the Eötvös Loránd University Faculty of Law and Political Sciences, the Faculty of Arts, or, further afield, the clinics and, finally, at Nagyvárad Square, the main building of the Faculty of Medicine. The life of a student in Budapest is not much different than the life of students anywhere else. College days are spent studying and partying, or in some cases, partying and studying... As such, adjusting to Hungarian university life should not prove to be too difficult for the increasing number of foreign students (arriving at present mainly from Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, the USA, as well as from Middle Eastern, and African countries). 99

6 V DEBRECEN DEBRECEN the city of independence From Budapest By train_seven InterCity and other express trains depart daily from Keleti Station. Travel time is approx. 2 ½ hours. By bus_buses depart from Népstadion bus station, traveltime is approx. 3 hours. By car_either take National Route No. 4, or M3 motorway towards Miskolc, turn at Mezôkövesd onto route 33. The latter is a better choice not only it is shorter and quicker, but it also allows the traveller to pass through one of the country s most popular tourist attractions, the centre of Hungarian pusztaromanticism, the Hortobágy plain. Arriving in Debrecen Train station_petôfi tér, 10 minutes walk from the centre, or take tram No. 1, which will take you beyond the centre to the university campuses, located in Nagyerdô park. Local Transportation The main form of public transport is the tram (No. 1), and buses (especially No. 31), but trolley buses are also available. DEBRECEN DEBRECEN The City Debrecen is the second largest city in Hungary with a population of nearly 220,000. The city is considered to be the citadel of Hungarian Protestantism and has been referred to as the Calvinist Rome. It also served as the provisional capital of the nation (and the symbol of national independence) twice in the course of Hungarian history first during the 1848 Revolution, and nearly a hundred years later, during World War II, when Budapest was occupied. The city has maintained its ancient mercantile character. The city s cultural life is also quite rich with several well-known festivals taking place here every year. 100

7 DEBRECEN V The University of Debrecen Before the recent integration of Hungarian universities, Debrecen had three universities and two colleges. The most prestigious and the oldest institution is the Reformed College (Református Kollégium), founded in It is not only a seminary, but also a centre of Hungarian scientific thinking. The neighbouring building, the Great Church, is also one of the city s main architectural symbols. The success of the Reformed College laid the groundwork for the establishment of the University of Debrecen in This institution, founded in the spirit of the classical European universitas, consisted of four major faculties: Arts, Medicine, Law, and Theology. Negotiations concerning the reunification of the rather divided educational structure started in the 1980s. The Technical College and the Nuclear Research Institute of the Academy of Sciences also joined the university. Finally in year 2000 a large university of ten faculties covering most disciplines was formed with the name of the University of Debrecen. Debrecen Summer University One of the most significant forums for teaching the Hungarian language, culture and history (Hungarology) is the Debrecen Summer University. It has functioned within the framework of the University, since Debreceni Nyári Egyetem_Debrecen, Egyetem tér 1. postal address: H-4010 Debrecen, Pf. 35. tel/fax: (52)

10 V GYÔR GYÔR the fortunate city From Budapest By train_trains departing from Keleti Station arrive in Gyôr in 85 minutes. Besides the 9-10 InterCity trains running daily, most international express trains from Western-Europe stop in Gyôr, so it is possible to reach the city without having to go through Budapest. By bus_buses depart from Népliget tér bus station, traveltime is approx. 1 ½ hour. International buses (from Vienna, Bratislava, Prague and Munich) also have scheduled stops in Gyôr. By car_take the M1 motorway. Gyôr is 125 km from Budapest, but can be reached from the other direction, via Vienna. Arriving in Gyôr The railway station is in the middle of the city, behind the Town Hall (Városháza). From there go through the centre, then cross the Mosoni Duna bridge, and the college is approximately 10 minutes from there. The bus station is located next to the railway station. GYÔR GYÔR The City Situated half way along the road between Budapest and Vienna, Gyôr, with its 130,000 inhabitants, is one of the most fortuitously situated cities in Hungary. Close to the western border, situated at a meeting point of major highways, railways, and three rivers, Gyôr has been virtually unavoidable for those who travelled to Western Europe for centuries. The reconstruction of its downtown received a European Prize for the Protection of Historic Buildings. With a significant commercial and industrial heritage, Gyôr is, today, one of the most dynamically developing cities in Hungary. Hungarian branches of multinational companies (e.g., Phillips, Audi) have settled here, encouraged by the presence of existing large Hungarian companies (such as RÁBA). An enormous demand has been generated in the region for highskilled labour as a result. 104

11 GYÔR V The University The Széchenyi István College that was actually declared to be a university in December 2001 is housed in a single buildingcomplex across the town centre on the far bank of the Moson- Danube. It has not only extended the range of programmes offered (introducing departments of Law, Economics, Fine Arts and Medicine), but it has also attempted to implement a form of practice-based engineering training. This programme combines theoretical and practical elements through close co-operation with local firms. The number of regular and distance education students is nearly Nature and Villages Nearby Three rivers meet in the city of Gyôr the Danube, Rába and Mosoni-Danube. Although this is an industrial town, it includes a number of fine examples of 17 th and 18 th century architecture and many fine baroque squares. The nearby Pannonhalma Abbey, 1000 years old in 1996, sits atop the Sokorói Hills. It is a centre of great historical importance (many of Hungary s early leaders were educated in this Benedictine Abbey) where the 1055 Royal Charter can be found.

13 MISKOLC V MISKOLC MISKOLC Miskolc the city reborn From Budapest By train_from Keleti Station, 5-6 InterCity trains daily, travel-time 2 hours. By bus_departure is from Népstadion bus station. By car_first take M3 Motorway, and then continue along National Route No. 3 for 180 km. Arriving in Miskolc By train_the University campus can be reached from the centre by buses 12 or 22. By bus_the Volán station is on Búza Square. From here you can take various long distance buses to excursion sites (such as the Limestone Cave of Aggtelek, Tokaj, etc.). By car_you can get to the university campus without going to the centre of Miskolc: at the edge of the city on National Route No. 3 there is a sign for Egyetemváros (City of University) at one of the junctions. Turn right, and follow Futó Street to the university. Local Transportation In addition to buses, the most important public transportation is tram No. 1, which runs across the central axis of the city. Constructed in 1897, it was the first tramline outside of the capital, originally transporting passengers from Tiszai Railway Station to Diósgyôr. Numbered buses run beyond city limits as well. The final station at Majális Square on the western end of the city is the point of departure for Lillafüred and the Bükk Hills. Buses run until 12:00 p.m.; after that, your choice is to return on foot or catch one of the yellow and black coloured taxis: (47) The City Despite being the third largest city in Hungary with a population of 194,000, Miskolc is neither an old nor a historic city. Situated at the foot of the Bükk Hills, where the valleys of the Sajó and the Hernád rivers meet, the city was an important commercial centre before the 19 th century due to its geographical location. Later, with the industrialisation of the country, the importance 107

14 V MISKOLC of the nearby coal and ore mines grew, and Miskolc became the industrial centre of Hungary s northern region. The city s very recent development is reflected in its architecture. The city s main promenade, Széchenyi Street and a few turn-of-thecentury houses around it, represent all that remains of the older quarters. There was never a shortage of housing projects over the last few decades. Miskolc offers one of the best locations for studying the construction of socialist era blocks of flats, should one feel so inclined. With the shift to a market economy in 1989, the bloated industrialisation of the city created serious challenges in the 1990 s. But now, Miskolc is beginning to pull itself together, and the main features of the city s new image are developing rapidly. One of these is an upswing in tourism. The University Located southwest of the city, along the road to Miskolc-Tapolca, the recent reconstruction of the university is another important element of the city s new image. The style of the buildings proudly displaying the Soviet architectural achievement of the 1940s and 1950s is an immediate indication that there is nothing medieval about this university. The Technical University for Heavy Industry, created in 1949, was built on the model of the American campus. It stands outside the city, constructed on a huge site surrounded by parks and sports fields. For nearly forty years, engineers were trained in metallurgy, mining and mechanics at the various faculties. A shift in economic policy resulted in the gradual contraction of the region s mostly unprofitable heavy-industry. This led to a drastic decrease in the level of student interest in the university s faculties. The need for change was recognised quickly. The University of Miskolc (the name that replaced the Technical University for Heavy Industry) has developed a thoroughly different training structure. Few of the technical faculties were maintained, and new faculties of law, economics and arts were introduced. The Bartók Béla Institute of Music joined the university in 1997, while the Comenius Teacher-training College of Sárospatak was integrated on January 1,

15 MISKOLC V Nature and Villages Nearby The Diósgyôr Fortress, which was built at the beginning of the 15 th century and Lillafüred, one of Hungary s most romantic palaces (situated on the bank of a lake) are both interesting sites for visitors and residents alike. For a moving experience, the forest train (erdei kisvasút) is strongly recommended. It departs from the edge of the National Park of the Bükk-hills. Sárospatak is sixty kilometres away from Miskolc. The town s fame derives from its Castle built in late-renaissance and early baroque style rising above the banks of the Bodrog River. Sárospatak is also famous for its 16 th century Calvinist College, which was an outstanding educational institution of the time. Aggtelek, which became part of the World Heritage, near the border of the Slovak Republic, has spectacular limestone caves stretching for over 20km (12.5 miles). Staying in a bungalow at the mouth of the caves is a real adventure. Last but not least is the mellow, dusty village of Tokaj, next to the lazy Tisza River. The largest wine cellar in Europe can be found here. Tokaj is famous for its sweet Aszú wine. The local museum (Tokaj Múzeum) gives a detailed overview of winemaking in the town. Eger is the home of the northernmost Turkish structure, a 40 m (131 ft) high minaret (climb to the top for a bird s eye view of the town), the famous Bikavér wine and various impressive churches. The Eger Castle dates back to the Middle Ages. This is the place where Dobó István and his 2,000 men (aided by some brave women as well) repelled the Ottoman army of nearly 100,000. A valley full of wine cellars dug out of the hillside (called the Valley of the Beautiful Women ) is on the outskirts of the town. Szilvásvárad offers a museum covering the history of the renowned Lipizzaner horses, as well as a stud farm breeding them. It is a pleasant village to visit and is near the scenic Bükk Mountains. It is also a popular hiking centre. 109

By bus_buses depart from Népliget Square bus station, travel-time approx. 3-4 hours. By car_follow National Route No. 6. Arriving in Pécs Train-station_1 km south of the city centre. The university can be reached from here by local bus. Local Transportation Local buses run till 11:00 p.m., but there are night-rides to Kertváros and Uránváros. If you need a taxi, we recommend catching a Volán taxi cab that is supposed to be the cheapest. (72) The City The city of 180,000 inhabitants lies 200 km from Budapest on the southern slopes of the Mecsek Hills. This excellent location, as well as the city s unique, almost Mediterranean climate, its rustic city centre (the old Christian relics of the Roman Era became part of the World Heritage in 2000), makes the city very popular among young people in Hungary. All of this is complimented by a rich cultural life, a wide variety of galleries, museums (e.g. the Csontváry Museum features one of Hungary s best known and most colourful post-impressionist artists), as well as many night-spots. The neighbouring countryside is also worth discovering: the Mecsek Hills, the wine-region of Villány, the Spa of Harkány, and the historical fortresses of the area (e.g., Siklós, Pécsvárad). The city was inhabited in Roman times, and was known by the Romans as Sopianae. Several Turkish monuments, dating from the Ottoman Empire, attest to the fact that the Turkish people were fond of the city and give the city a cross-cultural character. Perhaps Pécs s best-known monuments are the Turkish Mosque and the Minaret in the city s main square, Széchenyi tér. 111

18 V PÉCS The University of Pécs Hungary s first university was established in Pécs in 1367 (only two years after the founding of the University of Vienna). Having received the right to establish a studium generale, it was possible to teach all sciences, with the exception of theology. During the following centuries Pécs was stripped of its university, up until 1923, when the University of Pozsony (now Bratislava, in Slovakia) had to be relocated to Pécs. The previous university with its faculties of arts, medicine and law, can be considered a forerunner of today s University of Pécs, which now boasts nine faculties: arts, law, fine arts, natural sciences, technical sciences, medicine, economics and teacher training. The total number of students is around 10,000.

By bus_buses depart from Népliget Square bus station. Travel time is approximately 2-3 hours. By car_take the M1 Motorway in the direction of Gyôr, enter the by-pass south of Gyôr, and at the final exit take National Route No. 85 to Sopron (220 km from Budapest). From Austria By train_several trains arrive daily from neighbouring cities (Vienna, Winer Neustadt, Ebenfurt). Sopron is closer to Vienna s airport than Budapest s, so this alternative route is worth considering. By car_if coming from Vienna, take the A3 motorway, or National Route No. 16. You will arrive to Hungary at the Sopronkôhida border crossing. Arriving in Sopron By train_the train-station is west of the city centre and can be reached on foot (10 minutes) or by local bus. The university is located north of the centre, and there is a direct bus line between the station and the university. By bus_the bus station is also north of the centre, the university can be reached by local bus. SOPRON SOPRON 114

21 SOPRON V The City If upon your arrival you hear German spoken everywhere, and see German language signs, do not worry that you are lost in some small Austrian town. Sopron is, in fact, a Hungarian town of 55,000 inhabitants. This fact was ensured in 1921 by the people of Sopron, who in a referendum held after the World War I, decided that they would rather belong to Hungary than to Austria. Hungarians are proud of Sopron, often referring to it as the city of fidelity, for this reason as well as for its beauty and medieval atmosphere. Nature and Villages Nearby Near Sopron, in the village of Fertôd is the Esterházy Palace (a rococo extravaganza sometimes called the Hungarian Versailles ). This palace offers occasional concerts in its hallowed halls, and visitors can even spend the night there as well. Reservations: (99) The town of Kôszeg, located near the Austrian border takes pride in its history. It was here that in 1532 captain Jurisics Miklós and his army managed to bring the Turkish army, led by Suliman the 2 nd to a stop, and thus preventing the Turkish invasion of Western Europe. The church bells ringing at 11 a.m. commemorate this event. The region of Ôrség and Göcsej can be found in the southwestern part of the country, and they are of ethnographic and natural importance. This region, due to its relative isolation (as a result of the closeness of the Western border) has preserved its traditional culture with regard to its architecture, customs, traditions and national costumes. 115
