a city of rivers and thermal water with baroque center
Gyor is one of the largest and most important cities in Hungary. It lies midway between Budapest and Vienna. The main sights are Káptalan Hill at the confluence of three rivers (Danube, Rába and Rábca), Püspökvár, and the residence of Gyor’s bishops, that can be easily recognised by its incomplete tower. And many others sights worth to see.
Lovers of architecture and history appreciate the large amount of tourist spots like the Town Hall, the Benedictine church of St. Ignatius of Loyola, Carmelite church, Museum of Roman Archaeology or Gothic Dóczy Chapel is. The Imré Patrkó Collection on the main square Széchenyi includes fine arts and african and oceanic art crafts from the 20. century. János Xantus Museum shows interesting findings in field history, medicine, art craft and philately. In the main square lies three important buildings of Benedicts: Sv. Ignatius church and both sides of the Terraced house with the Medicine Museum in the ground floor and Széchenyi pharmacy, with original baroque equipment and wonderful frescoes.nThe local thermal and experiential watering place was opened in 2003.
