||The European Youth Orienteering Championships 2022 will be held in Salgótarján.
Salgótarján is the capital of Nógrád County, in Northern Hungary. It’s located at the foot of the Karancs mountain, in the Cserhát hills, 250 meters above sea level, 120 km north-east from Budapest, and 10 km south of the border with Slovakia. Salgótarján is surrounded by beautiful forests and hills topped with castle ruins. The town already existed in the Middle Ages, but information on it is scarce possibly because it was a small settlement. The word salgó means “shining” in Old Hungarian, while Tarján was the name of one of the Hungarian tribes conquering the area.
Real development came in the mid-19th century, when a coal mine was opened nearby. The job opportunities provided by the mine and the developing industry began to attract people. The village grew quickly and was granted town status in 1922. Today visitors can see the remains of the mining industry by visiting the Mine Museum. In 1950, Salgótarján became the capital of Nógrád county. In the next twenty years several villages were annexed to the growing city. The coal mines closed years ago. The population is around 34.000 today.
