„The Town of Queens" /Veszprem, HUNGARY/

„The Town of Queens" /Veszprem, HUNGARY/

Veszprém is an old historical town. Veszprém is called the Town of Queens, since it was favored by medieval Hungarian queens. Gizella, bavarian wife of Hungary's first king, St. Stephen (997-1038), took refuge here when fleeing from rebels. Throughout the history the town attracted most of the Hungarian queens, many of whom having been crowned in Veszprém, which still pays tribute to its beloved queen with the Gizella Days, an artistic and scientific festival, taking place every May.

Population: 63.908 inhabitants.

Veszprém

Since I see there are almost no discussions or photo-threads about that beautiful country called Hungary, let's start showing a bit about the very very pretty univeristy town of Veszprém. It's one of the oldest towns in Hungary, and just 15Km north of the Balaton lake.

So, let's see how it looks like (they even have a skyscraper! )...

Veszprem used to be called the "Town of Queens", and its almost 1,000 years old. Thanks for the pics, the city looks really clean and old buildings look reburbished and impressive.

It's also good that the town center retained is medieval walled acropolis, one of the few towns that did next to Esztergom.

Its really interesting how old hungarians improved obliterate traces of the slavic population who lived at hungarian territory.
For example at Romania, where is the big slavic influence at placenames, the original names of the cities, rivers and counties are unchanged..Bistritza, Tolitza, Ilfov, Braila, Slatina...
