Mosonmagyarovar is situated at the crossing point of the rivers Mosoni-Danube and Lajta, at about 15 kilometres from the Austrian and Slovakian borders. It was already known in the Roman age as a watch-post along the limes under the Latin name Ad Flexum. After the Conquest it was used as a reeve-site, later it became shire-town. The main road of transportation for corn and animal carriage from the Hungarian Flatlands to Vienna led through the town. During the years, the town of Magyarovar developed into an industrial and trade centre of the region while Moson remained a significant village inhabited by merchants and husbandmen.


The town’s most important tourist attraction is its thermal water, which is acknowledged medicinal water and belongs to the five best quality ones in Europe according to its classification.
