One of the most important sights of Veszprém’s Castle District is easy to spot: the towers of the cathedral are visible from all over town.

As proved by a letter from the Abbey of Pannonhalma, the church already existed in the 10th century, and it’s mentioned in later documents as the oldest cathedral in Hungary.

The edifice has two towers, three naves, and an eclectic style: the walls are from the Árpád era, some of the windows display a Gothic influence, and the altars bear the elements of Baroque – meanwhile, the church was last renovated in Neo-Romanesque style after a 1906 earthquake.

Tip: The crypt is a must-see, and if you’ve never seen a real religious relic, you should definitely view the arm bone of Queen Gisela, on display on the left side of the altar.
