“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. The key to the development of these settlements and local society lies in the power of locality and the inclination for economic and social cooperation, as well as integration abilities building on these two elements. This needs to be consciously developed, from the individual, family and settlement to the micro-region, county and country and through to the European community.”

(Excerpt from Homok–Haza Literary Picture Book)
