Leaving Budapest on national motorway No. 4, you can get to Vecsés, which is almost "grown together" with the capital. The village of 18,673 inhabitants is situated right next to Ferihegy Airport. If you hear the name of the village, you immediately associate it with the sauerkraut, which Vecsés is deservedly famous for. The village was first mentioned in records in 1318. In the 14th and 15th centuries the region had a dense network of villages, the documents mentioned it as a church place. In 1786 prince Grassalkovich settled down 50 families in Vecsés, who were mainly Swabian - and to a lesser extent Slovakian and Hungarian - inhabitants from the surrounding villages. The village started to develop quickly after it was formed. From the end of the 19th century the population started to grow, the village had a busy social, cultural and political life. It had a high number of victims in World War II. By now it has become a town of individual character. It was given the rank of town on 1 July 2001 approved by the President of the Hungarian Republic.
