Riding post beneath the shadowy trees

Once rarely a stopping point, Túrony is now worth a visit, if not least thanks to its recently restored church. Now a tourist target of the Dráva Basin as a tour stop for riders and cyclists, its extensive open ground is highly suitable for camping. The linear-pottery peoples of the Neolithic left their mark here, followed by the creators of encrusted pottery during the Bronze Age. The village of today was formed in Roman times, lining both sides of the military road. The small village museum also provides a glimpse of the past. The village is first mentioned in the 12th Century and immortalised in the Battle of Túrony, when responding to the call of Lajos Kossuth the people rose against the imperial forces, whose victory was followed by the raising of the village. The most notable building of the village is the Árpád-period church, which still preserves its Gothic sanctuary. The Protestant church was later decorated with painted wooden panels, but these have been destroyed. They were however copied at the last minute and the motifs used in the designs of the Zsolnay Porcelain Factory.
