Nagykáta járásszékhely- town in Pest County , the Nagykátai district .
Trade has become the dominant and most important business, with plenty of stores open in recent years. The main commercial zone has been transformed, it has been transferred from the already mentioned Bazársor to Dózsa György utca, but it is constantly expanding, as the shops open next to the main road 31 and on Jászberényi út one after the other. The main institutions were renovated almost without exception and also became a bit exaggerated in size, as they also had to cater for many locals: the Police Headquarters was built in the mid-1990s, the Fire Brigade was handed over in 2000. The market, which is very important in the life of the city, has been completely renovated and has also been made suitable for larger outdoor events. The spa and beach bath, which has moved to a new location, attracts a lot of people, not only from the immediate area, and more pools and adventure baths were handed over last year.
