Kán is a settlement formed at the junction of the Mecsek and the Zselic, in a valley running north-south. The village is surrounded on all sides by woods, and is a one-street village, making it geographically isolated from traffic.

After the Second World War, following the German expulsions, the inhabitants left the village and in 1978 Kán ceased to exist as an independent municipality, and a year later it was annexed to the village of Hetvehely.

This task highlighted the need to create a promenade linking the town with the coast and the pier, the main attraction of it was the 72 m long sea organ integrated into the pavement.
