This town is next to Lake Velencei and is a popular summer destination. The town is divided into three parts: Gárdony, Agárd and Dinnyés and lies on the south shore of the lake. The name Gárdony is believed to have originated in the early 13th century.[according to whom?] There is at least one known writing dating back to 1260 that referred to Gardun, King of Zsigmond (1387-1437).
