The town centre was developed at the turn of the 20th century and the fashionable facades of that era have been preserved in all their original splendour.  Wandering around the city centre of Kaposvár, built in the Art-Nouveau and Eclectic Style, visitors bump into statues and buildings with their stories waiting to be told at every turn. While these stories unfold, one learns about the fascinating history of our city and of its people.

Discover the surrounding countryside! The neighbouring forests, lakes and villages offer excellent opportunities for nature walking, hiking, fishing and learning about local architectural traditions. An adventure park for children is also available.

Accessibility

The Municipality of Kaposvár and its partners aim to providing accessible services for tourists and locals alike.

A significant part of Kaposvár’s city centre is a pedestrian only area, which has reduced air pollution and eliminated traffic. It also allows the centre to serve as a venue for a variety of cultural and community events. Recent years have seen a continuous increase in the number of bicycle lanes and paths.

Adapted pedestrian crossings,  ramps, tactile signals, orientation, barrier - free zone for wheelchair-users at festivals and a welladapted public transport system are just some of the assets of accessible Kaposvár.
