Dombrád is one of the oldest settlements of Hungary.
It lays in Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg county in the north-east of Rétköz in 103 meters elevation. The first record of the village is from the year 1067. It is a small town with a population of 4346.
More than half of the people belong to reformed church and one of the biggest churches in the area can be found here. The building was consecrated in 1913.
Dombrád won first price in 1999 in the Movement of Hungary in Bloom in which we have been taking part from year to year since then. In the year 2000 we represented Hungary in the European Competition for Gardening and Flowering Villages and Towns. In the same year Dombrád became a town.
The settlement has a wonderful riverbank of Tisza where there are swimming and amusement facilities and programs are waiting for the visitors from spring till autumn. In the town and by the bank of the river there is accommodation available. The closeness of the river makes Dombrád a very popular holiday resort. On 20 hectares there are 147 sites with holiday homes, 26 company recreation areas, camping site for 120 space, juvenile campground for 100 persons, groceries and catering places. Yearly 2500-3000 persons spend more or less time here with recreation.
We are in receipt of the program of Tisza Tour, as the most beautiful as well as the longest part of it can be found in our county. The participants of the tour prefer staying at the bank in Dombrád since they can use the facilities provided by Csárda Inn.
Different water sport facilities are provided as well, such as paddle boating and boating, water-skiing. There are excellent fishing places around Dombrád. The most common fishes are carp, starlet, pike, catfish, barbel.

The Art Gallery exhibits mainly work of local amateur painters, but from time to time it opens the door to guest artists.
The Local Historical Exhibition can be seen in the village hall at the terminal station of the narrow-gauge railway. The remarkable collection consists of nearly 2500 pieces and is thematically organized so visitors can get an insight into the old crafts’ technology for example in full procession of hemp.
We have many things to see at Railway Carriage Exhibition also the Railway History Exhibition, as our collection is growing due to the visitors’ offers.
One of our prominent traditional program, the Trotters-Day is organised last Saturday of June every year and in the autumn there is a Vintage Procession. Both programs are worth seeing because of the gastronomic experience one can get there and because of wide range of different attractions, as well.
