What is worth to visit in Szigetbecse?

Szigetbecse’s tourism is from the anglers and the holiday makers arriving to the riverside. The Danube side in Szigetbecse is very attractive because of its free beach and its area in the Danube backwater.

Museum of André Kertész

Szigetbecse is the proud home to a museum faithfully preserving the memory of André Kertész (1894–1985), perhaps one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century.  

Did you know? 

...that the most important place in the life of the Hungarian-born artist was Szigetbecse? He spent many summers of his childhood and youth at his relatives living here. His first photographs were taken of the local landscape and residents.  

The artist’ strong attachment to Szigetbecse remained till the end of his life, so he was delighted to hear of the plan that a house similar to the old one his relatives once had here would be built for him. Kertész sent 120 of his original, signed photographs, then, following his death, several pieces of furniture from his New York apartment and some of his personal effects were also brought here.
