History

Archeologists found here some very interesting finds from the Bronze Ages, so it seem like this land was inhabited since this early age. After the Hungarian conquest some fishermen and hunters settled here. The first source which mentioned the name of Kacskemét dates back to the 14C. In the 14-15C it was already an oppidium which means a small town with some privileges. During Turkish times it became part of the Ottoman Empire, but the town could slowly develop even during these hard days. In the 19C the inhabitants of Kecskemét commute themselves from all taxes. The town had a lively cultural and political life during the Reform Period in the 19C. The town developed quickly. After these flourishing years the 20C was full of difficulties, but Kecskemét recovered and nowadays it is one of the most imposing towns of Hungary.

Place of interest


After refreshing your self in the spa you should take a walk in the town to see some imposing buildings and interesting exhibitions.

The five crafts of property practiced in the factory are pottery, chemistry, painting, sculpture and architecture. There are lots of great buildings all around Hungary, which used the products of Zsolnay. It is special and therefore easily recognizable.
