Kossuth square
Kaposvár (70,000 inhabitants) is the capital of the Somogy county and is located 43 km from Magyarlukafa (driving the narrow concrete road between Antalfalu and Szulimán).
Kaposvár isn't a city with plenty of historical monuments, but its stylish pedestrian shopping street (Ady Endre utca, Kossuth tér, Fő utca) can only be admired. The very broad street is seldom, if ever, very crowded and is flanked by numerous tall stately houses dating back to the beginning of the last century.
In the same street three remarkable groups of sculptures, located in the street itself as if they were passers-by, will most certainly catch our attention. The first one represents two children playing in the street, in the other two the protagonist is Rippl-Rónai József (as the man with the hat). Rippl-Rónai József was a famous painter from Kaposvár (symbolism) who has his own museum in the city.
The Kossuth tér (town hall, cathedral) fills, in an ingenious way, the available space using curves, water features and benches.
At a small distance, south of the Fő utca is the Rákóczi square and the Csiky Gergely theatre built in 1911 in szecessió-style (Hungarian Art Nouveau).
