Jewel Box: Köszeg, Hungary

Dubbed as the Jewel Box of Hungary, Köszeg is a lovely town situated on the Austrian border at the foot of the Alps. It was established during Medieval times, and now hosts some of the country’s historical monuments and outstanding architecture. Its medieval walls are intact, and the lay-out of the medieval inner town has been preserved. Its streets paved with cobbled stones and colorful little houses with matching fascinating squares all create a cozy atmosphere for the visitors. On top of this, the hills and forests surrounding the town always provide a refreshing air. If one wants to unwind and have a respite from the hustle and bustle of the world, Köszeg is the place to be.
