Hatvan is township, 60 (hatvan) kilometres from the capital, Budapest, hence the name and situated in the Zagyva valley, between the Mátra and Cserhát mountains and the Great Plains of Hungary.

Although there are indications as in most places in Europe including Hungary, that it was settled in the late Stone Age and Bronze Age, very little is left due to Hatvan's hard to defend, central position and Tartar, Mongol and Turkish invasion, when the settlement was razed to the ground.

Hatvan and the sorrounding Zagyva river valley is a very fertile agricultural ground.

The nearby hills are also very rich, fertile volcanic soils for wine growing.

Hatvan is an important centre for road and railway traffic and the districts agricultural and commercial servicing.

Today's Hatvan has many attraction, like a couple castles, statues, and municipal buildings and many others.

Hui Chin and I stayed at one of the old castles, that is run as a Hotel now.

We have enjoyed our stay.
