Kecskemet - Main Square
View from Kecskemet City Hall: the Main Square of Kecskemet (Kossuth ter), home of numerous festivals, fairs, concerts and events throughout the year.
So what’s with all the white tents on the Main Square?
Well, those are temporary artisan shops and street food vendors. The tents go up when there is an event or festival in the town, so if you see those through the webcam, you know that this would be the perfect time to cross the pond and check out Kecskemet in person.
