The county capital ZALAEGERSZEG, just 37km west of Keszthely, and familiarly known as Zala, began to metamorphose after the discovery of oil in 1937, and is now the most industrialized town in southwestern Hungary, with a population of 70,000. Despite the futuristic television tower featured on tourist brochures and the bleak downtown area of housing estates and landscaped plazas, Zala hasn't totally forgotten its past: vestiges of folk culture from the surrounding region are preserved in two museums and an annual festival.

The biggest Jazz Festival of the region: although the center of the Festival is the 3 days in Kecskemét, there is 10-15 cities involved in 6-8 days every year. It is the Festival of specialties: according to the philosophy of the Festival we invite ragtime and traditional jazz bands and soloists who are among the very best and are unique in some regards - in style, instrumentation, repertoire... And, of course, they are all "Bohém" (i.e. bohemian - meaning happy, carefree, funny etc.). Visit the "Bohém" Festival - come and see it yourself, you won't regret it!
