Post WWII synagogue

This synagogue is no longer a place of worship due to it was unclaimed after WWII ; therefore, it is currently use as a conference centre and café.

It is one of the majestic landmarks in Kecskemét across the street from Cifra Palota on Szabadság square. According to the town's guide, the building was built between 1864 and 1871 in moorish-style

At Szövetség tér

This morning the weather was mildly cold, great for a walk. So, after having the usual sunday lángos , we head toward Szechenyi Város (suburb of approx. 30k) . The purpose was to take a peep at the area where we found a nice flat for sale. Then along the way we saw this interesting looking statues at Szövetség tér (tér = square) ..the name is unknown to us. Any kecskeméti can help to identify?

The suburb

The trees provide a sense of peace to the otherwise heavy traffic infront of these houses.

200 year-old office building

When you enter the100+ 200 year-old admin. building it is as if you've gone back in time . As you walk up the staircase you get to see the different elements and styles of architecture. Our visit (due to paper works) is far too short to fully explore the building, but I'm sure we shall return very soon for more.

The first Piarist friars

The first Piarist friars arrived at the town in 1714....

Reading the town's guide, I learnt that this secondary grammar school has been operating for almost 3 centuries! The school was built next to the monastery between the two world wars following the plans of the professor of the Technical university, Dezso Hüthl. It is of Baroque style from outside. I have to find a chance to go inside to see how it is on the inside!

5 months living in Kecskemét

click on photo to view larger

First off, Happy new year 2008 to you! Sorry, no photos of new year's celebration here as we spent it with friends in Szeged .
End of 2007 marked the 5th month living in Kecskemét for us. We're still looking for our own home ; hence, we couldn't commit to daily postings as this blog was originally set to do. Hopefully when things are settled, will be able to venture into the many attractions this town has to offer.
