in Nagyrábé:  

The village of 2,490 inhabitants is situated in county Hajdú-Bihar. It was first mentioned in the Regestrum of Várad in 1215 under the name Rábé. In the centre you can see the Protestant church with a shingle roof built in 1809, the church is a protected monument. Another monument in the park - in the former market place - is the World War II. memorial with a crane, the typical bird of Sárrét, by sculptor Sándor Győrfi. An interesting sight is the former mansion of the Des Echerolles family. On the one hand, the building has a mediaeval atmosphere, it is decorated with corner turrets, on the other hand it is a French-like romantic mansion. The 250-300-year-old oak trees in Füstpuszta are the witnesses of the past, these protected natural values and the mansion are harmonically integrated in the park which formerly had the style of the English landscape. The Regional Village Museum in the park of the Community Centre presents the former lifestyle of the people living here. The Székely gate of the renewed building of the local council was made by Árpád Sófalvi, a carver from Korond in 1996. The village offers natural, architectural and ethnographic attractions for tourists. Its territory is part of the Bihari Nature Reserve. Near the village towards Bihardancsháza you can find the habitat of the largest bird in Hungary, the bustard. Three volumes of the Village Book of Nagyrábé compiled by the Nagyrábé Friends' Circle and Association. The cultural values of the village include the Folk choir awarded the Golden Peacock prize, the zither group and the weaving workshop.
