Gyula is an important centre of culture in the South-Eastern part of Hungary. The Gyula Castle Theatre has its home in the court of the only brick fortress surviving in Central Europe. Audiences are entertained with the best performances of historical dramas, opera, ballet, mediaeval courtyard-music, jazz, puppet-show, classical and folk-music and folk-dance. Not only the court of the fortress is turned into a theatre, but programs of great variety are available on the nearby lake-stage and on stages set up at different venues in the town. Gyula, the pearl of the Hungarian Lowland, has a typical festival atmosphere. When you visit the town, you can enjoy not only theatre programs, but you can recover from the every day stresses in one of the most beautiful spas of the country.
