History

The first source which mentioned the name of Szarvas was the Gesta Hungarorum written by Anonymous, which dates back to the 13C. During Turkish times it was an important place of traversing, so a small fort was built to protect Szarvas from Turkish troops. Even though, the settlement became deserted by the end of the 17C. Its new owner János György Harruckern called new Slovakian settlers to this land. Szarvas started to develop in the 18C, due to the new agricultural school established by Sámuel Tessedik.


In the 19C the first printing office of Békés shire was opened here. One of the owners of this land, the Bolza family built great mansions and castle, established an arboretum, so Szarvas flourished during this century. The view of the town today took shape during the 19C.
