Szeged is a city in the south of Hungry, on the confluence of the rivers Tisza and Mureš. It is a regional center of the south-eastern part of the country and the capital of the county Csongrad.
There are two legends about the origin of the name Szeged. According to one legend, the city was named after a Hungarian word for an angle – szög, as the river Tisza flows through and bends, i.e. “makes an angle”. The second explanation is that the name comes from the Hungarian word for an island, i.e. sziget.
The name of the city is similarly pronounced in many languages of neighbor states. So, in Bulgarian language the city is called Seget, in Romanian – Seghedin, in German – Szegedin or Segedin, and it is also similar in Croatian, Slovakian and Turkish – Segedin. The name is completely different in Latin – Partiscum, which was the name for the Roman settlement that existed on the place where the city lies today.
Szeged is famous for food industry, mostly for the pepper processing. The specialties in the city are Szekeli goulash and Pick Salami.
