The name of the settlement (halász = fisherman) on the bank of the river Mosoni-Danube reflects its location as well as its past: its olden inhabitants delivered fish to the Magyaróvár estate. The village is also called as the gate of Szigetköz because we can enter the ‘world of thousand islands’ through the Halászi-bridge. The bridge was built in 1905-1906 and had to be rebuilt twice up to now. In World War 2 it was blown up and it collapsed in 1992. In the centre a large-sized Baroque-church... tovább towers over two houses with rural-baroque pediment. The frescoes of the church were painted by Maulbertsch-pupils. There are a country tavern and a leisure park established at the bank of the Mosoni-Danube river and they are popular targets of those arriving on the river or by bicycle, longing for a bathe or a boat trip. The riding stable and adventure-park (quads, rope-way) in Babos-ranch offer many opportunities for active recreation.
