Mohács is in Hungary.

Understand[edit]

Mohács (Croatian and Bunjevac: Mohač, Serbian: Мохач, German: Mohatsch, Turkish: Mohaç, Slovak: Moháč) is a town in Baranya county, Hungary on the right bank of the Danube.

Two famous battles took place here:

   Battle of Mohács, 1526
   Battle of Mohács, 1687

These battles represented the beginning and end, respectively, of the Ottoman domination of Hungary.

In Roman times there was a camp on the banks of the Danube near Mohács.

In the medieval Kingdom of Hungary, Mohács was part of the historical Baranya county, and during Ottoman rule it was the administrative seat of the Sanjak of Mohács, an Ottoman administrative unit. After the Habsburgs took the area from the Ottomans, Mohács was included in the restored Baranya county.
