Programs in Spring

Each year, on the second day of February, the Carnival Bear Watching takes place in the Zoo of Szeged. Traditionally, if a bear sees its own shadow on Candlemas Day due to clear weather, it will retreat into its cave and winter will persist for long.

On 24-26 March,World Water Day is celebrated on Szent István tér.  The Water Tower opens its door these days, and from April to October on the first Saturday of each month from 10.00 to 16.00 the „Old Lady” can be visited. 

Starting on 11 April, the 17th University Spring Festival will last for one month, and it will feature diverse academic, cultural, educational, sport and entertainment programs, conferences, faculty days, at various venues of the university and the city. 

The IH Events Center welcomes interested parties with varied concerts in the spring as well.

In the spring, outdoor programs also increase in our city. In May, after Majális, the Day of Szeged Celebrations will be held with the Wine Festival, Bridge Fair and Dóm Square Cavalcade.

A truly outstanding sports event will be held in May, between 11-14, the ICF Sprint and Paracanoe World Cup.
