Algyő is a settlement in Csongrád-Csanád county, only 10km from Szeged, on the right bank of the Tisza. The national highway No. 47, which passes very close to Algyő, provides easy access to the town, as well as the Szeged-Békéscsaba railway line, which is almost on the same axis, and two road bridges and a railway bridge nearby, ensure easy access. The area, which has been inhabited since the conquest of Hungary, has enjoyed the benefits of its geographical location for centuries. However, the proximity of the Tisza has also brought dangers throughout its history, as the great flood of 1879 in Szeged completely destroyed Algyő. New economic and demographic development started with the discovery of oil and gas fields in the 1960s. It lost its independence in 1973 and was annexed to Szeged, but regained its independence by 1997 through a referendum.

Thanks to its proximity to the Tisza, there are many outdoor recreational opportunities. In addition to supervised beaching, the open beach by the Tisza offers a beach volleyball court, umbrellas, first aid facilities, changing rooms, showers, toilets, a snack bar and bicycle storage. For hiking lovers, the 1.5 km long Tisza Watershed Nature Trail and Lookout offer close-to-nature experiences.

One of the cultural attractions of the village is the medieval church of St. Anne, whose construction can only be dated within a wide range of time, between the 14th and the end of the 15th century. In addition, the house of the blacksmith László Elekes and his family, which serves as a country house, preserves and presents the past of Algyő from the beginning of the 20th century. In addition to the rooms presenting relics of the past, the Tájház also houses a room for museum education.

The popularity of Algyő is enhanced by the pleasant, family atmosphere of the Borbála Spa. Every member of the family can find the service that suits them best, from the wellness area to the baby-friendly sliding pool.
