Szerencs is a town in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén county, Northern Hungary. It lies 35km away from Miskolc, and 205km away from Budapest.HistorySZERENCS, with a population of 9,100 inhabitants, grew into a town where the Great Plain and the Zemplén mountains meet. It is the cultural and economic centre of Southern Hegyalja. This small town, with rich historical past, is called the Gate of Hegyalja and due to it was inhabited in ancient times.The first authentic written record about the one-thousand-year-old Szerencs dates back to a document from the 13th century. In 1241 the monastery of crusaders from St. John-order (the Joannists) stood here, which was named “Szerencs-Abbey of the Apostles called St. Peter and St. Paul”. The documents from the end of the 15th century refer to the settlement as a town.The most important part of the history of the town can be connected to the era of Zsigmond Rákóczi, around the 16th and 17th centuries.In 1605 in Szerencs on his land the parliament was convoked where István Bocskai was elected the Governor of Transylvania.Programme “Day of Szerencs town“ has been organized since 1998 to celebrate this historical event on 20 April, every year.István Bocskai gave Szerencs the status of a royal town with significant privileges in 1606.Among the Rákóczi Family the last lord of the Szerencs-castle was Ferenc Rákóczi II. In the 18th century, in the era of Mária Terézia, the settlement began to show slow economic development. Then this development came to a sudden stop and during the administrative reform of 1876 Szerencs was qualified as a large village, i.e. it lost its status as a medieval market town. Szerencs is in Borsod-Abauj-Zemplen County. Start your trip to Hungary by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.
