Szigetvar Hungary, Szigetvár, Magyarország
Szigetvar is a very interesting historical place in Hungary. The Defenders of the fortress had fight a battle till death with the Turkish army. In the old times the fortress had been surrounded by water, this is where the name come from (Szigetvar means island fortress). For me as a Hungarian man the visit of the ancient heroes home land gives a lot. It was moving to hear from people who sacrificed their life for the Nation. The fortress is very interesting, it is possible to walk around at the top of its walls. The fortress can be found in a beautiful park packed with birds, the area is very quiet and relaxing. Before the fortress entrance a small Spring can be found with a bridge over it.
