"The Town of Queens" - that's what this town is called. The country's first bishopric was established here because it was the duty of the Bishops of Veszprem to crown the Hungarian Queens.
Veszprém has many unique artifacts of Hungarian Church history: the country's oldest frescos can be found in the early-Gothic Gizella Chapel. We can also see the crypt of the Bishop's Cathedral which retains a precious relic of the first Hungarian Queen, Giselle of Bavaria.
Saint George's Chapel, built during the 9th and 10th centuries, must have been the first church in the country. The classicist Piarist grammar school, church and monastery was built in the 18th century.
From the old town opens a wonderful panorama on the nearby peaks of the Bakony Hills.
