Mogyoród is a village in Pest county, Hungary.LocationThe town is 18 km from Budapest next to the M3 freeway in the valley of the Gödöllői hills. Its highest point is the Somlyó mountain, (Gyertyános 326m) that can be seen from the freeway or the HÉV. Many people come to live here because of its proximity to Budapest while retaining the quietness of the country. Every year the Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix is held here.HistoryOrigin of the nameThe name of the town derives from the Hungarian word for hazelnut, and can be roughly translated as "rich in hazelnuts". Although today there are only a few hazelnut bushes, local tradition holds that the town's presbytery still holds the town's first.The name of the town can be found in many documents as "Mogyoród" in the Western alphabet, in Turkish tax papers as "Magoród" and "Mogyorós", and in foreign ecclesiastical charters as "Monorond", "Mangerat", "Munerod", and "Mamorade".Battle of MogyoródThe most authentic paper of the battle is a charter from the Holy Roman Empire from the end of the year 1074, which didn't tell the place of the battle but contains that the Hungarian king, Salamon lost the battle. The next resource in time is from the 'Képes Krónika' (Chronicon Pictum) which tell us details of the battle: (free translate by myself) 'The only important place near to the battle was Zymgota (Cinkota), which is near to Monorod ("rich in hazelnuts") mountain on which the battle was fought. The only way to find the exact place to find the massgrave which was created by the fight, cause the writings from that time can't be used now because those aren't true for the lie of the land of these days (mostly cause of the location of the forests and the meadows).Mogyorod is in Pest County.
