VESZPRÉM

We made short sightseeing in one of the oldest urban areas in Hungary. CIty lies on both sides of the Séd creek, approximately 15 km north of the Lake Balaton and 110 km from Budapest. According to legend, Veszprém was founded on seven hills with its famous castle. Veszprém was the favorite city of Queen Gisela, the wife of St. Stephen. For centuries, the queens of Hungary were crowned by the bishop of Veszprém. The city is still often called “the city of queens”.
