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.
