Zalaegerszeg is a Hungarian town, and the seat of Zala county. The historical core of the town is situated at corner of the intersection of the Zala river and the Válicka stream. In this swampy valley there used to be a wood of alder. Zalaegerszeg is a dynamically developing town, which at the same time carefully preserves its past and its natural resources. Thanks to the hospitality of its inhabitants, the visitors can feel themselves at home.

Location

The town's name tells us a lot about its location. "Zala" shows that it lies in Zala county, and "éger" refers to the trees (alder) . It lies in a picturesque, hummocky valley covered with woods and vineyards.

History

The history of Zalaegerszeg is preserved by the 750 years old writings. It has been the center of the Göcsej region for more than five hundred years, and from the 18. century onwards it also holds the county seat. The patinated buildings, the old County Hall and the church erected in that period are the important symbols of Zalaegerszeg. The church's patron saint - Mary Magdalene can be seen in the town's coat of arms. From the mid-20th century, the town became a bustling place. Nevertheless, this lively industrial and commercial center fits perfectly into the landscape of the nature surrounding it. That is one of the reasons why are the visitors so enchanted by this place.

Attractions

The values of Zalaegerszeg are starting to become more and more known and popular. The local village museum - Skanzen, which is a vast, open-air museum shows the past of the town. At the northern part of the town stands the AquaCity Zalaegerszeg . It is an amusement and theme park, as well as an indoor thermal bath, which uses the thermal water found near the Gebarti Lake.
