Rezi is a town in Zala county in Hungary in the northwest of the Keszthely mountains. The village with its 1,100 inhabitants is located between Cserszegtomaj and Zalaszántó.


The village's name is probably of Slavic origin, since the word " rez " in this language as mountain ridge or ridges. The history is closely linked with the local castle on the back of the 418m high hill not far from the settlement.


  • From the castle ruins are only a few walls and bulwarks of the 13th and 14th centuries to see. Some standing walls are between 8 and 10 meters high and 120-180 cm thick.
  • The csárda, a former hunting lodge, built in 1728 was regarded as the meeting place of robbers and highwaymen of the surrounding Bakony hills. Savanyu Jóska, Vak Illés and Kokes Pista 1862 were lured into an ambush in the guest house of the local police by treason and killed. Their graves are in a willow tree next to the hostel. This building is built in the farmhouse style and now houses a restaurant.
