Very important from historical point of view. Nice carry out, but really nothing special. It is surrounded by weekend houses and only one small mill and flag and two benches on a small court. Should be spent more on such kind of places.

River view is good. You can take beautiful panorama. But long way to arrive. There are a lot of Cano on the river.

Nostalgia in a scenic bend of the Koros
Apr 2016 • Couples
It is customary for countries to calculate the geographic center. I never understood why, but it is done, and with frequency. This place, commemorated by a windmill-shaped monument (reminiscent of the original, demolished a hundred years ago). Next to it, there is a huge Hungarian flag blowing in the wind and a few steps to the North , a carved wooden arch. The entire monument is on a quiet bend of a side branch of the river Koros. It is suitable for peaceful contemplation or as the start of a relaxing nature walk.
While this "geographic center" was the center of the Carpathian basin, the place occupied by Greater Hungary, after the dismemberment inflicted on the country by the Treaty of Trianon (at the end of WWI), and the armistice at the completion of WWII, the current geographic center of the much diminished country is elsewhere, many miles to the Northwest (latitude 47 degrees 11 seconds;longitude 19 degrees 30 seconds).
