Welcome to the English speaking visitors

We launched the completely updated and re-designed site after a long and careful work.

We hope that this new content will provide you with useful knowledge about Nézsa, this quiet Nógrád county village.

You can read about our history, learn about the sights as well as the availability of the most important institutes.

Mayor's Welcome

Our past is marked by some monuments and these define the present image of Nézsa. Among these are the the church, the manor, the calvary in the cemetery, some hand-carved tombstones from the 19th century. The most characteristic of all is the monument-group in the middle of the village; it is surrounded by a huge park, its late beauty can still be discovered here and there.

Short History of Nézsa
