About

It was depopulated during the Turkish occupation and the territory was donated to the Wattay family by Leopold I in 1691. The family settled Slovakians from Upper Northern Hungary in the town. The Slovaks living in the town are proud of their origin. The cultural character of the town was influenced by another factor, namely, that the poet, Sándor Petőfi was born here on 1st January 1823. The thatched native house of Sándor Petőfi was built around 1790. Joined to the modern building behind it a... tovább literary museum is housed here. In front of the house the statue of the poet can be seen. Petőfi was baptized in the neo-Gothic Lutheran church (1784). The Slovak House of Regional Traditions has an extremely rich ethnographical collection. The Eclectic Town Hall, built in 1893, can be found on Petőfi square. The open-air bath is supplied with 53 degree C medicinal water. The collection of road transport, which is unique in the country, displays the relics and equipment of road and bridge construction from the ancient times up to now.
