    How to find the objects.

    by Askla Written Jul 7, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I have put links to Google Map in my tips to make it easier to find the objects mentioned, when possible to get the right position. The links are marked in italics. Unfortunately Google Map isn't very precise and too often points to other buildings than the wanted one.

    History of Veszprém

    by grayfo Written Dec 17, 2012

    Favorite thing: Historically, Veszprém had an important religious role during the fight to make Christianity the official religion of Hungary - St. Stephen defeated the armies of his chief opponent, Koppany, near Veszprem. The city became the first episcopal seat of Hungary in 1009 and an archiepiscopal seat in 1993.

    A bit of the history.

    by Askla Written Aug 22, 2015

    Favorite thing: Like many other Hungarian towns it has a Roman heritage. But it was inhabited already during Stone Age. The Romans arrived to the area for the first time during the time of Emperor Augustus (ruled between 27 B.O.T and 14 AD). They stayed for more than 300 years.
    King István built a cathedral which was inagurated in 1001, and in this cathedral many queens thereafter were crowned.
    The town floorished but the Turks conquered it in the 1450s, and when it later was rerleased there was not much more than ruins left. In the middle of the 18th century was the reconstruction works started and it was then it got its Baroque feel.
