Tourists and businessmen visiting Kecskemét, the “famous city”, can choose from five different walking tours of Kecskemét.
1. Downtown walk:
starting from the main square the tour visits beautiful and exotic monuments and buildings and explores the city’s rich history that dates back nearly 650 years.

a favourite program among school and tourist groups, the tour covers the distance from the Sun to the distant Pluto in a mere 1 hour.
