Ozora is a village in Tolna, Hungary. It has been notable since the Middle Ages, when Pipo of Ozora built a castle at this site by permission of Sigismund of Hungary in 1416. Artúr Görgei won an important victory in this area at the Battle of Ozora during the 1848 Revolution. In recent times, it has become famous for the psychedelic Ozora Festival, which has been held annually since 2004 on an estate in Ozora near the small village Dádpuszta.[3]
