Csongr�d County, in Hungary's south, borders Serbia and Romania. It is Hungary's lowest area, and is almost perfectly flat. One of Hungary's warmer counties, Csongr�d is known for Szeged paprika, Pick salami, Szatymaz peaches, and Mak� onions. Wine is also produced here, particularly around the Pusztam�rges area.
The county seat is Szeged. �Its oldest monument is the D�m�t�r tower, a 12th century Gothic tower with a Romanesque base. Nearby is a noted baroque Orthodox Serbian church, with rococo embellishments. Another religious structure is the 20th century Szeged Cathedral, whose eastern side symbolizes peace, while its west side symbolizes war.
Outside Szeged, the Onion House in Mak� is worth a visit, as is the remains of the mediaeval Ell�s monastery in the town of Csongr�d, which the county was named after.
