What is the view beyond the statue in the last photo?
A panorama view on the city and the rocks of St. Benedict. I’ll make a post about it soon,
I’ll look forward to it.
I guess I am interested to know whether what you have shown here is, for example, a preserved jewel set in an industrial town or whether the rest of the town is kind of like this too?
It’s very appealing, by the way.
These are photos of the castle district. Veszprém is a very old town and its biggest part actually looks like a village, with small, old houses with gardens. It is called “the town of the queens” (it has something to do with Gizella, the wife of our first king, István, but I don’t know the legend) and it was always more of a cultural center than an industrial one. Of course it is a big city so there are also some factories and modern houses but it’s mainly a village-like setting with a small historical center. It is very green and beautiful. It has also a military base, a university and a zoo.
