in Nagyréde:   Sight

Nagyréde with 3,357 inhabitants is situated in the hilly region of the southern foot of the Mátra hills. The core of the settlement was created in the filled up, flat valley of the brook running from the hills. On the higher edge of the floodplain a row of cellars was built and later some parts of the village were also built here in the 20th century. It was first mentioned in records in 1275. The oldest house of the settlement is a simple, three-section Palots cotter’s house with a thatched roof typical in North-Hungary. The crosses in the territory of the village are important historical relics, the stone cross at Rákóczi road e. g. marked the western end of the settlement. Other sights include the Museum of Wine making, the Gallery of Nagyréde, the Fáy, Brezovay and Földváry mansions, the Roman Catholic church, and the statue of St. John of Nepomuk from 1807, which can be seen in the garden of the parsonage. If you drink good wine – you can also ”taste” the region where it is grown. The excellent wines of Nagyréde offer this experience. The geology and the climate have created a unique wine region here. The special vines have been grown on the sunny hillsides, protected from the northern range of the Mátra hills for seven hundred years. The taste of the white and red wines grown here is well-known in several countries. Large-scale production has managed to preserve the old tradition: the wine art of small cellars.
