Cserszegtomaj

Cserszegtomaj is a village in Zala county, Hungary. It is located north of Keszthely, at the south-west foot of the Keszthely Hills.EtymologyThe name Cserszeg comes from the compound of the two Hungarian words cser and szeg (meaning corner). Tomaj was originally used in the forms of Tolmay, Tolma, Tolmad, therefore, it is not likely to refer to the Tomaj genus who lived in that region in earlier times. Tomaj is rather originated from the Old Hungarian name Tulma, which comes from the Turkish language and means filling.HistoryCserszegtomaj is believed to have been inhabited since ancient times, as artefacts of Romans and Eurasian Avars were explored in that region.The village was first mentioned as Tolmaj in 1357, when it was drafted together with Keszthely. Its chapel was built in the 15th century, in the eastern part of the village. In 1564, the region was invaded by Turkish troops and gradually lost its inhabitants for the 1620s. Though, its vineyards were still cultivated by the villages of surrounding areas.Cserszeg appeared in the 17th century and might have belonged to Keszthely. Its main industry was also wine producing.In the beginning of the 19th century, the vineyards of the region were in the focus of attention, which resulted in the quick development of the area. In 1848, the two villages were united and Cserszegtomaj was born. Its population consisted of 1239 people in 1857, which was regarded high at that time.In the 20th century, the village did not develop significantly and its population began to decrease as its inhabitants migrated to Keszthely and Hévíz.
