The number of inhabitants in Halászi is 2,928. It is a village 5 km from Mosonmagyaróvár, on the bank of the Moson branch of the Danube. The past is symbolised in the place-name: one-time residents were suppliers of fishes for the estate in Magyaróvár. In the 16th century, the privilege of market town was obtained, later with right to use a seal. Local tradition holds that the nearby place names Salamon lane and Salamon wood retain the memory of King Salamon fighting for his throne in the 11th century, who was received by the village and donated these areas to the village, when he regained his rule. In the village centre, between two peasant houses with gable, the markedly big Baroque church is dominant. The altar-piece was painted probably by pupils of Maulbertsch in the period, when the master was engaged in painting the Cathedral of Győr. On the bank of the Danube, a small sports centre has been developed with soccer field, camping area, motor boat port, rent-a-boat service and a free swimming area along the river. In the village accommodation at private houses is available.
