in Lónya:   Hotel - Sight - Business Travel

Village with 987 inhabitants, the northernmost settlement in the Bereg district of the Tiszahát region. A crossborder frontier station by road to Sub-Carpathia. There is a pontoon bridge and a ferry on the Tisza. The name of the village was first mentioned in 1270. Its church dedicated to apostles Peter and Paul and its priest called Péter were mentioned in records of papal tithes in 1332-35. The village was destroyed by the Mongols in 1567, the inhabitants who settled down here became Calvinist and founded a mother church community and gained and used the mediaeval church. The Romanesque single-nave church is oriented with a square-ended apse. It has been preserved with 14th-15th century Gothic extensions. There was a crypt under it. The members of the Lónyay family were buried here, but in the 1870s their mortal remains were taken to the new crypt of the family built in the cemetery. The steep western facade of the church without a tower is pointed. The gate is framed with beads and in its arch the plaster decoration has a folk character. The church was given its present-day form in the Calvinist period. High above the gate you can see a pointed window. In front of the north-western corner of the church you can find a 26,5 m high tower, which is completely made of wood.
