Pusztaszabolcs is about 40 km southwest of Budapest in East Transdanubia.

In 2004 and 2005 the (Great) village made unsuccessful attempts to get city status.

The settlement, much like the surrounding area was the Zichy family's manor holdings until the late 19th century. For the first time in 1875 received the 'independent village' title.

In 1875, still known as Szabolcspuszta got a railway station on the Budapest - Sárbogárd line and subsequently merging with many small, neighbouring settlements enjoyed rapid development.

In 1889 became a (Great) village mainly due to the number of its population, without having many of the infrastructure normally such places posses.

In the late 19th century many new railway lines were built throughout Hungary and around the area and Szabolcspuszta became an important centre for many of these lines, like Budapest - Pécs, the Pusztaszabolcs - Dunaújváros - Paks, the Pusztaszabolcs - Székesfehérvár, also to Budapest, Sárbogárd, Kaposvár and Baja.

In 1896 the farm holdings in the area changed hands and also the railways opened a couple of new lines from Szabolcspuszta - Paks and the Szabolcspuszta - Börgöndpuszta - Székesfehérvár branch lines,serving most of the Transdanubia.

In 1924, the neighbouring 3 large farm holdings and the railway settlement united under one administration and begun the infrastructure development, the name was changed to Pusztaszabolcs and very rapid development begun.

Since the development of the heavy industries at Dunaújváros, many services and related industries developed at Pusztaszabolcs.

At present Pusztaszabolcs still enjoys large scale expansion and many shops, warehouses, small and larger industries serving the neighbouring rich farming communities.

Unfortunately I do not have many of my photos left, although we had four cameras between us and we taken many, many photos wherever we went, two of my cameras, with large, 512 MB SD Cards and many thousands of photos on them with my valet and money, were stolen from my bag, later into our trip, by some 'lowlife'.
