                                         The region is rich in historical heritage. These pages are intended to intro-
                                         duce the cultural heritage of the region and also to encourage the reader
                                         to visit the northern region of the Great Hungarian Plain and its wide
                                         variety of architectural and cultural sights.
                                         The Thermal Bath of Sóstó, situated right by the city of Nyíregyháza, is
                                         famous for its peculiar atmosphere that inspired Gyula Krúdy, the popular
                                         writer between the two world wars, as well as Lujza Blaha, the celebrated
                                         actress of the 19th century. Today people may revisit the past in the Mu-

                                         centres: the churches of the region. Most of these churches are the mas-

the 17th centuries. This church is the only one from the age of the Arpads
in Hajdú-Bihar County that still functions. The pulpit is 300 years old.
The Farkas line of the Gutkeledek family divided the ancient family herit-
age into two in 1289 and on one of the territories (in Belső Gút) a Roman
church was built in the age of the Arpads, the ruins of which are displayed
for visitors. The church ruins are well preserved and their pleasant envi-
ronment makes them a popular target of excursions.
The Calvinist church on Bocskay Square in Hajdúböszörmény is famous
for one of the biggest bastioned organs of Hungary, that is not only an
amazing piece of art but its sound is also immaculate. Hajdúdorog is
famous for being the centre of the only Greek Catholic diocese in Hungary.
The church was adopted as a Cathedral by Pius X in 1912. The Calvinist
church in Hajdúnánás was first built 800 years ago and underwent a series
of reconstruction until it received its final shape in 1868, when the famous
coffered ceiling and the impressive organ were placed in the church. The       Calvinist Church – Tákos
organ was designed by the famous teacher of music, Lajos Makláry.

    The Roman Catholic church of the town was built in 1895 during the
    Millennium (celebrating the thousand year-old history of the State of Hungary).
    The oldest church in Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok County can be found in
    Jánoshalma, and it is considered as a historical monument since its
    architecture contains Roman elements that were preserved during the
    series of reconstruction. The beautiful church in Jászszentandrás is
    decorated by frescoes of religious and historical themes painted by Fe-
    renc Chiovini and Vilmos Aba-Novák. The Gothic church in Jászberény, a
    Franciscan church named “The Name of Jesus”, has been rebuilt a number
    of times after it served as a palisade in the time of the Turkish invasions.
    It hosts the famous “Porciunkulai Búcsú”, a parish-feast organised every
    year on the first weekend of August. The two-steepled Roman Catholic
    church in Jászapáti is a medieval historical monument. The secco of the
    cupola was painted by Pál Vágó, the famous painter of the town, while
    the side-altars were made by Mór Than. The Castle Church in Szolnok
    has an extraordinary history. The church was built in the 1820’s by using
    the stones from the ruins of a Turkish mosque and a medieval church.
    The main entrance of the Calvinist church built in Classicist style is deco-
    rated by mighty Ionic pillars and a tympanum, the sanctuary of the Roman
    Catholic church contains the copy of the world famous religious painting
    in Czestochowa.

The castles and fortresses of the northern region of the Great Hunga-
rian Plane witnessed long-forgotten romantic love stories and the life of
princes and princesses. The most intact earthwork in Middle-Europe can
be found in Szabolcs, by the river Tisza. The triangular earthwork was the
scene of the national assembly in the age of the Arpads. The earthwork
was built by Szabolcs who was probably the prince after the death of
Prince Arpad. The castle of Kisvárda is a rare example of profane medi-
eval architecture. It was built by István Váradi, the Bishop of Kalocsa, in
a period after 1465. The castle of Kisvárda hosted the last inspection
of the troops by Ferenc Rákóczi II, leader of the Revolution (1703-11),
who also held negotiations in the Renaissance fortified castle of Vaja,
a historical monument surrounded by a natural park from the 16th cen-
tury. The Vay castle in Vaja has survived the past centuries in relatively
good condition. Walking in the park of the Andrássy Castle in Tiszadob is
like walking around the castles of the Loire Valley in France. The building
started to be built by Gyula Andrássy, Minister of Foreign Affairs, in 1880

     Traditional Handcraftsmanship
     The representatives of traditional professions and handcraftsmanship – wood
     carvers, weavers, embroiderers, potters – inherited their skills from a long
     sequence of generations. The variety in style and patterns that characterises
     these elements of folk art has accumulated throughout he past centuries. There
     are still masters of old professions in most of the villages, who are ready to
     teach about their craft in workshops or in courses. The products of traditional
     handcraftsmanship may become parts of our lives if we are willing to recognise
     the merits of an intensive coexistence between man and nature.
     One of the centres of folk pottery is Mezőtúr where pottery has been made
     since the 16th century based on the excellent raw material found in the area.
     The products of this region – jugs, dishes, plates, crocks, and flasks – are easily
     recognised by their colours: red, green and white patterns on an ochre back-
     ground. The Pottery Museum in Mezőtúr displays the history of local pottery
     until today in a permanent exhibition. The life and work of Balázs Badár Sr. and
     his family is displayed by the Memorial House. The “Hajdúság” region is famous
     for the black ceramics of Nádudvar as well as the white and felted embroidery
     made in the area. Felted embroidery is also made in the region of Debrecen
     and Derecske. The traditional skills of handcraftsmanship are practised in
     pottery workshops by renowned folk artists. Among these traditions the most
     prominent in Túrkeve is the skill of making “Cumanian” embroidery. Pillow-
     cases were made of woollen yarn and felt for a long time, but today household

     TREASURE TROVE: THE NORTHERN GREAT PLAIN REGION – CULTURE AND HERITAGE

     The cuisine of the northern region of the Great Hungarian Plain is charac-
     terised by a wide variety. Visitors can taste fresh milk, homemade sour
     cream and cottage cheese, eat the famous goulash, or try themselves in
     making plum jam. The region is also famous for its fish soup, fish stew,
     stuffed cabbage, noodle soup or potato pasta. The Szolnok Goulash Fes-
     tival Society organises the annual international Szolnok Goulash Festival.
     The increasing popularity of the Honey Festival in Jászberény brought
     international fame for the town. The cake competition in Jásztelek is also
     popular among confectioners and skilful housewives. The “Kuruc” Society
     in Rákóczifalva annually organises the National and International Bread
     Baking Competition. During the competition traditional harvest dishes are
     served and there is also a 17th century kitchen open for visitors.
     The river Tisza, its branches and fish ponds are popular among fisher-
     men. Most of the villages along the rivers organise fish soup competitions,
     where visitors can not only taste the most delicious dishes but try them-
     selves in making them. The first fish soup competition of the season is
     in May organised in Túristvándi, that is followed by another in June in
     Mezőtúr by the lake, and in August in Tiszabercel. The northern region of
     the Great Hungarian Plane offers a series of excellent programmes and
     festivals focusing on the cuisine of the region. Visitors may chose from      Pot Goulash

Straw Hats from Hajdúnánás
In 1873 the straw hat was already popular among the inhabitants of
Hajdúnánás, or at least among the workers in the bootmaker guild. As
their rules declared: ”… it is forbidden to work in hat, but workers may
wear a straw hat or a helmet …”. The straw hats made in Hajdúnánás are
sold nation-wide and abroad. Visitors can gain insight into the interesting
process of making hats in the workshop. The Gallery of the town is also
worth visiting.
