Kecskemét

History

Kecskemét's agricultural wealth was used wisely - it was able to redeem all its debts in cash in 1832 - and today the city can boast some of the most spectacular architecture in the country. It was also - and still is - an important cultural centre, home to an artists' colony and the world-famous Institute of Music Education.
