The small town is situated next to the XVIIIth district of Budapest (called Pestszentimre-Pestszentlorinc) and can be approached by the bus 94 on the Nagykorösi út. A train starts from Kobánya-Kispest (at the end stop of Metro 3) heading for Gyál-Lajosmizse-Kecskemét. The smartest way to come here by car is on highway M5.

The village was first mentioned in a folio of 1323. During the turkish occupation it was depopulated and was mentioned as a lowland plain for a long period. In the XVIIIth century the Koháry family owned it as a plain. Its development started in the second half of XIXth century, when it became the property of the famous Károlyi family. The small population multiplied. At the end of the century the Jálics family moved here and introduced wine- growing on sand. Nowadays Gyál is a garden city by the boundaries of Budapest, and it become a town officially in 1997.

There aren’t too much rubbish here, the anglers are kind, and you can really find fish in the water and some drink in the bar… You can take a pleasant walk aroud the lake.
