Fodor's Expert Review Paprika Museum

Kalocsa Museum/Gallery
Kalocsa and neighboring Szeged are the world's largest producers of paprika, and here in the attic of St. Stephen House, in downtown Kalocsa, you'll learn everything you ever wanted to know about the sweet "red gold," so vital to the region and to Hungarian cooking, from its history to its manufacture, not to mention its beneficial properties. The museum illuminates a tradition passed down from the 16th century that is still preserved by many artisan producers in the region today. Visitors can pick up a tin of the world's best paprika and choose from a sampling of colorful folk embroideries at the museum store.
