A taste of the exhibition
In the beginning of the 16th century the castellum built by János Dóczy served as a defendable fort of the vicinity. The village was named after the name of this fort. In the 17-18th century the word 'vár' (castle) was added to the name, thus forming the current name of the settlement: Szegvár. continue
