Kula-torony / Tower Kula

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

A környéket borító áthatolhatatlan mocsarak közötti egyetlen természetes átkelőhelyénél épült fontos vámhelyet már az 1330-as években említik. Valószínűleg az átjáró őrsége számára létesítették az őrtornyot, más vélekedés szerint a négyszögletes, támpillérekkel támogatott vastag falú kis erősség később, a török hódoltság idején épült ki. Neve - Kula-vár - török nyelvből fordítva tornyot, őrtornyot jelent.

The neighborhood is covered with bushy swamplands. There is only one natural passage between the swamplands. The important toll-bas was built here before 1330. The tower likely was built for the guards of the passage. In other suppositions this squarish little fortress with thick walls was built later under Turkish domination. The name "Kula" comes from Turkish language and its meaning is "watchtower".
