Hungary / Serbia

Starting on the Hungarian side of the border, EuroVelo 13 passes through a series of small villages many of which, like Bácsalmás, offer museums or local exhibitions.

Crossing the border into Serbia, the route eventually brings you to Subotica, which boasts Serbia’s biggest collection of art nouveau buildings. The City Hall, the Artistic Encounter Building and the Synagogue are of particular interest.  Just outside the town to the east is the Subotica Sandlands Landscape of Outstanding Natural Features which straddles the border with Hungary. 

The final significant settlement along the route of the Iron Curtain Trail in Hungary is Szeged.  The city is the third largest in Hungary and the regional centre of the Southern Great Plain. Furthermore, the University of Szeged is one of the most distinguished universities in Hungary.  Apart from its many interesting buildings, visitors are drawn by the squares in the heart of the town and the famous Reök Palace, a typical example of what is known as the Hungarian Jugendstil.

Just after the village of Makó you finally reach the border between Hungary and Romania.

  • Goulash, Hungary

    Contrary to what most people (except Hungarians themselves) think, Goulash is a soup and not a stew. The soup is both a national dish and a symbol in Hungary. Prepared with vegetables, paprika and other species, this dish is very old since its origins dates back to the 9th Century. Even if the goulash originally comes from Hungary (it means Herdsman in Hungarian), cyclists will have the opportunity to enjoy the different national versions of this dish since in the Balkans. However, for those who want to eat the stew which is called Goulash by mistake, they should order a pörkölt, made of pork, beef or even chicken. Photo: Karen Bryan
