You may refresh your self in a nice spa which was rebuilt in recent years if you visit Kunszentmiklós. Inside the complex there are three large pools. Nearby is a sport center where you can do sport after or before refresh your self in the spa.

History

Archeologists found here some interesting finds from the Avar Ages, like the princely gold treasure. You may see these in the József Katona Museum of Kecskemét.


The first part of the name of the settlement “kun” means “Cumanian”. Béla IV settled the Cumanian people here in the 13C. In the 18C they lost their privileges but they commute them selves soon again. In the 17C an important school center came to live here, the so known “schola”.


The inhabitants of Kunszentmiklós still foster their culture. Lots of people carpets of old rags, and there are also mat-makers and musicians living here who play traditional Hungarian folk music. Nowadays tourism is also getting more and more important.

Place of interest


After refreshing your self in the spa you should take a walk in Kunszentmiklós. By the side of the road which leads to Szabadszállás is the notorious “Neck cutting pub” (Nyakvágó csárda). There is a legend that centuries before someone killed the wife of the owner because of some love affair.


If you like to know more about how farmers lived on the Great Plain before, don’t miss to visit the folk museum in Selyem-tanya.


The local history museum is in the former mansion of the Virágh family. Besides the displays the building is also worth to visit.


Balázs Diószegi, a great Hungarian painter has a memorial house in Kunszentmiklós where you can see some of his works. His favorite themes were the inhabitants of this land and the nature around Kunszentmiklós.
