Amazing, isn't it?

Our flat, on the 8th floor, located at the heart of the city allow us to have this view every morning. One of the perks living in Hungary for me is to be so close with nature, definitely!

Hello world! Welcome to Kecskemét (pronounced kætʃ.kæ.meɪt) daily photo. We are perhaps the city's newest residents. Daily photo postings will begin when we settle the internet connection issue in our flat. Stay tuned!

Meanwhile, the following is a little info. I learned just a few minutes ago ...

Kecske means "goat" ; while mét refers to "district " in Hungarian.

Kecskemét – the capital of Bács-Kiskun County – fusing all the beauty and values of the Great Plain is situated in the middle of Hungary, approximately 85 kms from Budapest. - source city portal

Together we will explore the history, past and present of the city .. can't wait!
