Travel Tips for Gyor
Kossuth Lajos street
In Hungary you cannot find any village/town/city that has no Kossuth Lajos street (like Freddy Kruger said "there is an Elm street in every town>;-) ). Also Győr has one. It starts at the neo-gothic church and you find there two further churches among wich the first one (the yellow late baroque-classical) has a fantastic internal.
Altough in the fifth photo it seems itwas open, unfortunaltley there was an iron fence that imeded me to enter. I had been inside before and it`s a pity I cannot show some images about it. Further more I had no time to visit also the other church (the far one in white colour).
The Ark of the Covenant
The 8 metre tall Baroque monument to the east of the Cathedral was constructed in 1731, at the request of Emperor Charles III (1685-1740), by the Viennese court sculptor Antonio Corradini to a design by Joseph Emanuel Fischer. The monument shows the Ark of the Covenant held aloft by two angels; legend has it that the Emperor ordered it to be made as an act of atonement for the violation of the Blessed Sacrament: during a Corpus Christi procession a soldier who was chasing a criminal is said to have knocked the Ark of the Covenant out of the hands of a priest and smashed it.
