History

The name of this settlement might come from the fact that it had been a property of the king. “Polgár” means “citizen”. The villagers of this settlement had to work for the king, and for that he gave some privileges to his servants.


The first source which mentioned the name of Polgár dates back to 13C. During the 17C hajdú people came here. “Hajdú-“means some soldiers, who were before herdsman. In the 16C they organized them self into some kind of military groups. In the 17C István Bocskai availed himself of their services in the first Hungarian uprising against the Hapsburgs in 1604. After according to his promises, he gave land and noble rights to these soldiers. These people migrated from here because of some legal actions and new settlers came from the upper land. Polgár started to develop.


In 1993 it got the title of a town. Nowadays tourism is getting more and more important.

Place of interest


After refreshing your self in the spa, it is worth to take a walk by the side of River Tisza, in the nearby forest or in the town.
