Kecel is a town in Bács-Kiskun county, in southern Hungary.Croats in Hungary call this town Kecelj.HistoryThe first documents mentioning Kecel date back to 1198. Like many other Hungarian towns, Kecel has lost its population during the Turkish Conquest. On April 22, 1734 Gábor Patachich, the bishop of Kalocsa issued papers reestablishing the town of Kecel. At the time, most people made their living by herding. However, the rising population made this extremely hard, so people committed themselves to farming which still remains the main industry in Kecel. In 1802 a number of new buildings were built including: the Roman Catholic church, the Town Hall, the first school, post office, and the police and fire stations. The railroad also reached Kecel.DemographicsAs of the census of 2001, there were 9,259 people and 3,600 households.Twin towns – sister citiesKecel is twinned with: Schwarzenbruck, Germany (1991) Lupeni, Romania (2009)
