Photographer's Note

Tallya is a village now, but its buildings aren't in a countryside style. In the 17th century Tállya was already mentioned as a town, surrounded by a wall and a moat. In 1631 Ferdinand II gave the town right to hold a market and exempted its citizens from taxes.
In a census from the mid-1780s Tállya was the largest town of Zemplén county. The quick development of the town was mostly due to its vineyards.

The main causes of Tallya's downfall are its distance from main roads, the lack of markets for wine and the decreasing price of wine.
