Abstract

This paper analyses the urban history of Szabadka (today Subotica in Serbia), a multi-ethnic and multi-confessional royal free town, and the third most populous urban settlement in Hungary until World War I. This city evolved from a market town (mezöváros) as its ethnically and confessionally diverse enclaves physically merged in the nineteenth century to form an architecturally and socially coherent center. In addition to the town's urban history, morphology, and historical ethnic relationships, the article also deals with the effects of the rushed urbanization around 1900 and major construction in the style of Hungarian Art Nouveau, a kind of "national Esperanto" that became the town's lasting architectural feature.
