What to see in Kalocsa

Kalocsa, Hungary's Paprika Capital, is a picturesque town in the Great Plain region. Known for its vibrant folk art, ornate cathedrals and paprika production, it offers a colourful glimpse into Hungarian culture. Explore the Kalocsa Folk Art House, admire frescoes at the Kalocsa Cathedral and savour paprika-infused cuisine.

Kalocsa is celebrated for its rich folk art traditions and a visit to the Kalocsa Folk Art House offers a fascinating glimpse into this vibrant aspect of Hungarian culture. Located near the town centre, this museum is a treasure trove of traditional folk art, showcasing intricate embroidery, colourful ceramics and stunning hand-painted Easter eggs. Upon entering the Folk Art House, you'll be greeted by a captivating collection of Hungarian embroidery, known as Kalocsa embroidery. These intricate patterns and motifs, often featuring floral designs and vibrant colours, are synonymous with the region and have a rich history dating back centuries.

The Kalocsa Cathedral, officially known as the St. Mary's Cathedral and Archdiocesan Library, is a magnificent architectural gem that stands as one of Hungary's most significant religious landmarks. This stunning cathedral is renowned for its captivating frescoes, ornate interior and historical significance. The Kalocsa Cathedral dates back to the 18th century and its Baroque architecture is a visual delight. As you enter the cathedral, you'll be struck by the grandeur of its interior, characterised by vaulted ceilings, richly adorned altars and an impressive organ. However, the true highlights of the cathedral are its frescoes, which adorn the walls and ceilings. These intricate and colourful paintings depict biblical scenes, saints and religious motifs, creating a visual narrative that mesmerises visitors.

Kalocsa’s reputation as the Paprika Capital of Hungary is well-deserved and one of the most immersive experiences you can have in the region is to visit a local paprika farm. Paprika is a central ingredient in Hungarian cuisine and learning about its cultivation and production is a fascinating journey. A visit to a paprika farm provides insight into the meticulous process of growing, harvesting, drying and processing paprika peppers. You'll witness the vibrant fields of paprika plants, with their colourful peppers ripening in the sun. Depending on the season, you might even have the opportunity to participate in the harvesting process.
