Tourist information, pictures, and hotels for Veszprém, Hungary

Show picture Veszprém (population 59 000) lies between Bakony and the northern part of Lake Balaton. Its history stretches back to the time of Hungary's founding when Gizella (wife of St. Stephen, Hungary's first king) established the first episcopate and thus Veszprém came to be the city where queens were crowned. It has since been known by many as the City of Queens, and the town has remained an important center of the catholic church, becoming a archdiocese in 1993.

The historic town is rich in architectural gems and sights. Its most famous buildings can be found on Szentháromság tér (Trinity Square), including the gothic style Érseki Palota (Archbishop Palace) and the Gizella kápolna (Gizella chapel) with the early apostle murals on its walls. Veszprém also has several museums; a wide array of exhibitions and collections await those who are interested in the arts. One should definitely visit the Magyar Építőipari Múzeum (Hungarian Architectural Museum), the Gizella királyné Múzeum (Queen Gizella Museum), and the Művészetek Háza (House of Arts) which is, among other things, home to the work of contemporary artist. The Laczkó Dezső Múzeum (Dezső Laczkó Museum), which used to be Hungary's first public library, now accommodates local historical exhibitions.

Veszprém has a vibrant cultural atmosphere, with regular festivals and three theaters. This provides a great deal of entertainment for those seeking leisurely activities. Nature-friendly guests might want to visit Veszprém's famous zoo, the Kittenberger Kálmán Növény- és Vadaspark (Kálmán Kittenberger Zoo and Botanical Park).
