Emőd is a small town in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén county, Northern Hungary, 25 kilometers from county capital Miskolc.

History[edit]

The area has been inhabited since the Conquest of Hungary. Its name comes from an old Hungarian personal name. The town was first mentioned by Anonymus. Emőd has been a wine-growing area since the 14th century. In 1882 it was burnt down, but was rebuilt later. In 1872 it was downgraded to a village, and got town status back only on August 19, 2001.
