Tiszaszalka is a village in Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg county, in the Northern Great Plain region of eastern Hungary.


It covers an area of 15.20 km2 (6 sq mi) and has a population of 870 people (2015).[1]

The village is centred on a Reformed Church and school building, both rebuilt in recent years[when?] following Flooding.

Recent[when?] improvements to the flood defence system (raised earth berm) separating the village from the river Tisza, has allowed the emergency services and local population to utilise the berm as a vehicle and bicycle route.

Recent[when?] improvements in road infrastructure, namely the construction of the M3 motorway, has made the region more easily accessible from the west.
