History

According to the finds that archeologists fund here, this land was inhabited since the Great Migrations. One found here some remains of Avar settlements. The first source which mentioned the name of the settlement dates back to the 13C. This first settlement became deserted in the 16C, when the Turks invaded Hungary. After it became the property of the Grassalkovich and than the Nemeskéri-Kiss families, and was the center of their estate.


During the 19-20C it became popular as a holiday resort near the capital. Lots of weekend houses were built at this time. Nowadays more and more people build their houses here, and live in this peaceful area, though they work in the capital.
