This town is one of Hungary`s highlights!

I visit the beautiful city of Veszprém every single year with family, friends, sometimes alone. This place is surely one of my favourites in my country! It has a very old and fanscinating history, fantastic architectual partimony and the inhabitants are really very friendly. I spend weeks during the summers at the lake Balaton and our house in Balatonfüred is quite close to Veszprém: only 20 kilometres away. Once there I can`t wait to take the bus at the Railway station of Balatonfüred wich in 25 minutes arrives to the city centre of Veszprém. If You spend a week at the lake Balaton but the weather is not very good for swimming and sunbathing a visit here is a very good choice.

Wellcome to my virtual tour to Veszprém, the city of the queens!

The Castle Gate

The Heroes Gate. You can enter the Castle going through this gate, in wich btw. you can find the Castle Museum.

István and Gizella

In the prospects, advertisements this double sculpture symbolize Veszprém: it represents the first Hungarian King, Saint István (Stephen) and his wife, the bavarian Gizella.
