in Szomód:  

A Hungarian-German village with 2,033 inhabitants south of Tata.
The village has been inhabited since the Copper age, it was first mentioned in records in 1225 under the name Zummuld. In 1225 King Andrew II approved Miklós Bors' deed of gift stating that in his property called Summuld he donated a field, a meadow and a mill to the monastery of Borsmonostor founded by his father. In 1364 Zumold was the property of palatine Miklós Kont. In 1409 Zomold partly belonged to the castle of Tata. Near the border of Dunaalmás and Szomód, the road, which was built and used by the Romans for transporting the limestone quarried here for nearly two thousand years, is still in use between Kőpite hill and Les hill. This is the longest Roman road in Hungary. The 230 ha territory, which used to be a popular freshwater limestone mine in ancient times, has been under protection since 1977. This limestone was one of the most popular and most frequently used raw materials in building industry and sculpture.
