Szendro is a place in Hungary. Szend is a family name as well. We can travel there from here on holiday. What a beautiful adventure.
Szendrő was first mentioned in 1317. It was named after its owner Szend. Odly enough, Szendro is a Hungarian last name. The first stone-built castle of the county was built here, and it was an important border fortress during the Turkish occupation of Hungary, but Prince Francis II Rákóczi had it destroyed in 1707.
Szendrő was capital of the comitatus between 1613 and 1660, and centre of the Szendrő district between 1615 and 1930. The railway line of the Bódva valley (built in 1896) strengthened its role as a market town.
Szendrő got town status in 1996.
