Halászi

. As early as in the age of the Árpáds the settlement was a village of fishermen. They were fish suppliers for the royal court in Moson. During the 11th century's battles for the throne King Solomon fled to the Castle of Moson. The Solomon Path at the margins of the village has several interesting legends. Halászi has received its patent as a country town in 1550 from King Ferdinand I. In the 17th century the inhabitants were converted to Protestantism. The Calvinist preacher Máté János Samarjai was bishop of the Diocese by the Danube between 1622 and 1652. After the Re-Catholization, in 1755 a new temple in Baroque style, with a frontal tower and a semicircular sanctuary, was built in honor of St Martin. Over the high altar there is a painting made by the followers of Maulbertsch. The composition portrays all miracles of St Martin in a single picture; the bishop is sitting in the center and giving some money to a beggar. The temple's pulpit is an inspired carving in Rococo style.
