Sights to see[edit]

A copy of the Károli Bible, the first complete Hungarian translation of the Bible is exhibited in the Reformed church of the village.

The church was built in the 13th century. In the 14th century it was expanded and decorated with murals, one of which depicts a well-known legend about King Saint Ladislaus saving a girl from a Cumanian warrior who kidnapped her. There are about 50 churches in Hungary where paintings inspired by this event exist.
