History

There are very few finds from the early middle ages in Kaposvár. The reason is that this land was a marshy land, thus very few people settled here during the 11-13C. The first important event was the foundation of the Benedict monastery in Zselicszentjakab (1061). The first settlements became important during Turkish times. A fortress was built here. Kaposcár was defended time after time and in 1555 it became part of the Ottoman Empire for 131 years. In the 18C the fortress was destroyed by the Hapsburgs to avenge Kaposvár’s participation in the war of independence lead by Ferenc Rákóczi. You can still see some ruins of the former castle near the railway station.


The town was reconstructed after the wars. The Esterházy family had an important role in the reconstruction of Kaposvár. They made this town the center of their land around Kaposvár. In the 19C it was already the center of the comitat. Its inhabitants became real citizens. The town had a lively cultural life with its own journal, theatre, schools and its economy flourished with its new factories, the markets and the railway station.


It is even nowadays an important cultural, administrative and industrial center. The old center of the town was reconstructed in recent years thus tourism is getting more and more important in Kaposvár.
