Pannonhalma Sightseeing

Pannonhalma Sightseeing

(IN THE program)

The Benedictine Pannonhalma Archabbey or Territorial Abbey of Pannonhalma is a medieval building in Pannonhalma, one of the oldest historical monuments in Hungary. Founded in 996, it is located near the town, on top of a hill (282 m). Saint Martin of Tours is believed to have been born at the foot of this hill, hence its former name, Mount of Saint Martin , from which the monastery occasionally took the alternative name of Márton-hegyi Apátság. This is the second largest territorial abbey in the world, after the one in Monte Cassino.

Sopron Sightseeing

Sopron Sightseeing

(IN THE PROGRAM)

Hungary’s ‘most faithful city’ (a reference to the 1921 referendum when Sopron opted to stay part of Hungary rather than be absorbed into Austria) has been around for a while, first settled by the Celts, then the Romans (as a trading spot along the Amber Route from the Baltic Sea to the Adriatic and Byzantium), then a succession of Germans, Avars, Slavs and Magyars. In recent years, this little town also indirectly brought about the most dramatic event of the late 20th century – the fall of the Iron Curtain.

Today it is the most beautiful town in western Hungary, its medieval Inner Town (Belváros) intact and its cobbled streets a pleasure to wander. And if that weren’t enough, it’s also famous for its wine, surrounded as it is by flourishing vineyards.

Győr Sightseeing

Győr Sightseeing

(IN THE PROGRAM)

Győr is known as the town of rivers, lying as it does on the meeting point of three rivers. The monuments of the one thousand-year-old cathedral city, the beautiful baroque buildings of the atmospheric city centre, the museums and romantic riverbank promenades all encourage the visitor to stay longer.
