History

This land was borderland in the Middle Ages. One of the fortresses of this borderland with a fort and a gate was built here. Actually, the name of the town can be translated into “gate” and “fortress”, so Kapuvár’s history is still remains in the settlement’s name. Until the 14C it was the property of the king. After, famous Hungarian noble families became the owners of this land, such as the Kanizsay, Nádasdy or Esterházy families. Due to these families of the higher ranking, Kapuvár started to develop, and became an oppidium soon, which means a small town with some privileges. In the 19C the railway was laid down, and a new mill, hospital, and some industrial establishment were built. After Trianon, it was an administrative center for a short period of time. In 1969 it got the rank of town.

If you like to know more about local history, folk culture and see some displays of art, you should visit the Rábaközi Museum. This castle was built from the stones of the former fortress.


The farm bailiffs of the Esterházy family used to live in Rába mansion, which can be seen in F? tér. This imposing building houses the town’s library nowadays.


The former mill was rebuilt and modernized, but still worth the visite by the side of River Rába, next to the Small-Rába bridge.
