Hungary's crown jewel - Győr City
A city in the Northwest region of Hungary, Gyor is located at the "important junction" between Vienna and Budapest. Gyor is Hungary's sixth largest municipality. This land has been inhabited since ancient times - Celtic tribes, since the 5th century BC. They named this town Arrabona. During the next eight centuries, this name was still passed down from generation to generation of the residents living there.
Because it is located at the confluence of the Danube, Raba and Rabca rivers, the city of Gyor has played an important role for many decades - because the main trade in ancient times was using boats to transport goods across different countries.
Győr is known for its impressive Baroque architecture because Győr was reconstructed and developed during the most prosperous period of Baroque architecture. And to this day, those architectures are still preserved and kept for decades.
In Gyor, you can find hundreds of buildings that are considered monuments and most of them are located right in the city center. This is very convenient when you can visit all those great monuments with just one coach hire for Gyor trip.
Interesting places in Gyor
Baroque is the main architecture of buildings located in the old town in the heart of Győr city. Neoclassical architecture and built in the 18th and 19th centuries, the common feature of these buildings is that the facade is made of stucco and painted light yellow.
Gyor is a rich city in European history, and the streets of the old town are proof of that. Just walk straight along the main road, you will immediately see solemn squares such as Bécsi Kapu Tér and Széchenyi Tér, the cathedral, the bishop's palace - Puspokvár.
Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption of Our Lady
Located on Kaptalan Hill, the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption of Our Lady has had a turbulent history since its consecration by King Stephen I in the early 2nd century. Previously, at this location was a monument built in the Roman style. After being leveled by the Mongols in 1241, this location was replaced by a church from the 1630s.
The person responsible for designing the church was an Italian engineer - Giovanni Battista Rava. With brilliant Baroque architecture, and an image of the Virgin Mary on the north side of the nave; those two things are enough to make Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption of Our Lady one of the important places that pilgrims must visit on their private tour in Budapest.
Puspokvar (Bishop's Castle and Palace)
This is a structure with a combination of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture: the fortress is built in Gothic style and on the lower level, Baroque pedestals and railings are placed on top.
Puspokvar was built after the Mongol invasion in the 13th century. Puspokvar's chapel, connected to the eastern wall, is a distinctive multi-story building, built in the 15th century. The castle and palace was last restored in 1984 and is open to visitors from Tuesday to Sunday of the week.
Városháza (Town Hall)
This is the busiest place in Gyor and is also a symbolic building when it comes to Baroque architecture in Hungary. The building was designed by architect Hubner Jeno and built in the 1890s.
General Városháza has more than 200 rooms, a 59-meter high central tower and small, formal gardens. Right in the lobby, you can spot Gyor's coat of arms. Going a little deeper, you will admire a life-sized Carrara marble sculpture of King Stephen V from the 13th century.
