Sátoraljaújhely is a town located in Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén county in northern Hungary near the Slovak border. It is 82km east from the county capital Miskolc.HistorySátor-alja was a settlement from the Conquest of Hungary until the Tatars destroyed the town. It was rebuilt in the 13th century, although there was disagreement among the citizens concerning the name: some wanted to keep the original name, and some wanted to rename it új hely .Sátoraljaújhely was granted town status in 1261 by King Stephen V, and a castle was also built around that time.Sátoraljaújhely has often played an important role in the region's history: revolts against Habsburg rule began there in the 17th and 18th centuries. After the Revolution of 1848, Sátoraljaújhely developed rapidly owing to its location close to important trade routes leading to Poland, Russia, and Transylvania. The town's light industry led to it becoming the capital of the comitatus of Zemplén in the 17th century.Sátoraljaújhely has always been an important town in culture. Ferenc Kazinczy, one of the reformers of the Hungarian language, lived here in the 18th century. At the turn of the 20th century the town was home to a small but important Jewish community: some 4,500 of the town's 13,000 residents were Jewish. The community counted among its members Moses Teitelbaum and Michael Heilprin.Plan how to spend your time in Satoraljaujhely and other destinations in Hungary using our Hungary sightseeing planner.
