About

At the time of the Hungarian Conquest, Taksony belonged to Chieftain Árpád; later it became the settlement area of Chieftain Taksony, after whom it was eventually named. Left devastated by the Ottoman Turks, the village was repopulated with Swabian settlers. The Open Air Village Museum continues to preserve the national heritage of the village. Consecrated at the end of the 1950s, the new, circular building of the St. Anna Catholic Churc was built to the plans of Bertalan Árkay. Visitors of the... tovább settlement can take pleasant walks along the riverbank of the Small Danube, which also offers bathing, water sports, and angling opportunities.
