Gombolyag Foundation


“The four-tier settlement structure – farms, villages, large villages and rural settlements – which evolved in the area lying between the River Danube and River Tisza during the era of Turkish occupation is unique in Europe and even in the world. This is a natural attribute and also constitutes a value.
