Relaxation and entertainment in Nagyvázsony
The chapel which can be seen in the background was being built in 1796. The photo was taken on the Nagyvázsony cultural days. They organize several interesting programs at this time.
The village is first mentioned in a charter of 1233. Its name comes from the Váson clan, a dynasty which died out in 1472. King Matthias then gifted the estate to his favourite follower Pál Kinizsi, the military leader who had once been a miller's hand, a hero of legendary strength who defeated the Turkish. Kinizsi had it built into a residential castle.
During the Turkish occupation Nagyvázsony acted as a border fortress. In the 1700's it functioned as a manorial prison, then it was turned into a distillery for pálinka (Hungarian spirit) until it later became a home to elderly domestic servants.
By the 19th century the buildings around the keep had collapsed. The excavations of the Kinizsi Castle began in 1954. Among the old walls castle tournaments are held in the summer as a tourist spectacle.
The Pauline monastery and church were built by Pál Kinizsi from the spoils of the victorious Battle at Kenyérmező in the mid-1480's. The ruins can still be seen in the village.
The mansion of the area's last landlords, the Zichy family, was built in the 18th century and still stands. Its protected ancient park of 12 hectares has rarities like the 32-metre high, 200-year old trees.(Source: Vendégváró)

immagine molto animata e ben colorata, sicuramente grazie alla buona gestione della luce che esalta la resa cromatica.
Buono il formato rettangolare che riempie bene la scena.

People really seem to enjoy this sunny day, and what a lovely place for some outdoor relaxation. In a place like this in Sweden, everybody would be sitting down in the grass drinking coffee, but I can't see what they are doing here. Still it is a very enjoyable view and the colours are perfect. The whole frame of the photo is nicely filled with interesting details.

A very pleasant scne with all the people here enjoying themselves in the grass. The little fortified church behind them is indeed very interesting too. Was the distillery in that particular building? What an history!

This small church is remarkable. The presence and the activity of people, young people and less young, is pleasant to see. I like the note which one more time hints at the historic past and of the military and cultural resistance in the invasion. An image realized perfectly. Bravo.
Have a nice day
