The Tiszavirág Szeged is a unique place in Hungary where design and tradition in gastronomy and architecture come together. The Balassa House had been a part of the great Balassa estate, including Kistelek and Sándorfalva, before becoming state-owned. Salamon Politzer a famous Jewish goldsmith built it in 1858-59. The Balassa House is one of those romantic-style buildings from the 1860s, where little is known about those Jewish craftsmen who demonstrated splendid taste and knowledge in architecture, applied arts and decoration. The building’s balcony is volute, and the stair’s bannister reflects renaissance influence. As for its function, it used to be a commercial-civil house, where other famous Jewish citizens like Soma Bak and Lajos Pollák used to practise law at the beginning of the 1950s. The building became state-owned in 1952.
Tiszavirág is a wonderfully renovated historical townhouse wich stands in the center of the historical Jewish quater of Szeged. The four-start hotel has 12 rooms, a bar, restaurant, café, conference room and SPA. A warm and welcoming place where you will immediately feel at home no matter if you are on a business trip or on holiday.
