Some attractions in the vicinity of Orgovány:
The environment of Orgovány, with its alternating great plains and beautiful vineyards, is definitely worth a visit. Bugac-Puszta is also worth a visit. Here you can still find the old Hungarian way of life. With a horse-drawn carriage you can visit the Puszta or a very interesting shepherd museum. This shows you how the shepherds once lived. Then there is a spectacular horse show, where riders show off their skills. There is a nice restaurant and a souvenir shop which is not expensive! You can also take lovely walks along the marked trails. Soltvadkert is approximately 20 minutes away from Orgovány (by car). On the outskirts of the village there is a lake. A lot of people from Budapest spend their holidays here. Near this lake you will find many activities including a funfair and small restaurants and discotheques. The entrance fee is about 400 forints (€ 1.50) for adults, children pay half.
Kecskemet is a beautiful city with numerous art nouveau buildings. In the car-free center you can admire beautiful bell towers and lovely oriental-shaped cupolas. Every hour the carillon plays different works from the Hungarian composer Zoltán Kodály, who was born in this city. A visit to the Cifra Palota (the colorful palace) is worthwhile and there is also a toy museum nearby. The Harom Gunar (three geese) Restaurant is a great place to enjoy a fine meal. It is slightly more expensive than the restaurants in Jakabszállás, but the food is excellent. They also have special dishes for children. From Kecskemét you can take a journey with a narrow gauge railway which runs between Kecskemét, Bugac-Puszta and Orgovány. This train makes several trips during the summer.
Budapest needs no introduction, as it is the "pearl of the Danube". If you are in Hungary, this magnificent city is a must. From Kecskemét there is a regular rail link to Budapest. Traveling by train in Hungary is convenient and inexpensive. If you go by train, you will arrive at Nyugati train station, in the city center. At the station there is a tourist information kiosk and here you can get a free map. You can also buy a Budapest Card here. With this card you can use, without limit, the Budapest public transportation as well as get substantial discounts at various museums. What you absolutely must see: the wonderful Parliament building, situated on the Danube. If you go across Lanchid (Chain Bridge), you can see Buda, the part of the city on a hill. From Buda you have a wonderful view of Pest. In short, this city is very worthwhile, especially at night when the town is beautifully illuminated! Budapest is the second city in Europe which is called the City of Light.
