The poet visited our village, Dunavecsere, several times. In some cases he just stopped on his way to visit his parents in Szalkszentmárton. He rested every now and again on the Danube bank; this is why he chose to stay in Dömsöd.
Sándor Petőfi
This is exactly what happened in August of 1845 when he wrote his poem ’The Leaves are Getting Red on the Trees' standing under an oak. He crossed the river many times starting from this tree to the so-called ’Boatmen Island’ on the other side. This tree is still alive nowadays.

The next occasion he spent his time in Dömsöd was from 23, April 1846 until 22, May, when he spent a month in the village. Throughout this time his parents stayed here too. The building of shambles was on the present Petőfi Square. His parents stayed in another building, which still functions as a living quarter. A tablette on the wall signs their stay in the house.

At this time Petőfi rented two rooms from Mrs. Kukucska and Mrs. József Kovács with his friend Albert Pálffy. The rooms are displayed in the museum. The friends usually came here to work and rest.

He wrote his poems: 'I Made Myself an Exile', 'Salgó' and the 'Letter, to Antal Váradi'. Petőfi reached a turning point in Dömsöd. He began dealing with the French Revolution and in his 'Letter to Antal Váradi' he predicted the bloodshed, after which we can live a decent life. The revolutionary era of Petőfi is dated after this poem.
