Örménykút’s (Armenian well) name appears on 18th century maps as “Örmény barma kútja” (The well of the livestock of the Armenian). It preserves the memory of the Armenian tradesmen who escaped to Hungary from the Turks and rented the plains in the area. Its surroundings and inner area are real treasuries of archaeological sensations. The Décsi-mound preserves in its depths the foundation walls of the Árpád age church, which was unearthed recently. Below it was the medieval village of Décse. The... tovább Archaeological Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences performed some excavations within the village. One of the famous sights of the settlement is the windmill in Bakulya Row, which was built in 1870, and which is still enormous even in its ruinous state. The belfry, which was erected in the yard of the one-time school in 1994, preserves the memory of dozens of former farmstead schools in the region. Tóniszállás, next to the village, with its untouched fauna and flora, with its ancient turf and copses, offer an unforgettable experience to nature lovers.
