    A really beautiful building overlooking a charming square where there are some amazing fountains with frequently changing water patterns.

    Nice place to seat and eat, or take pictures. Two sides of the square are full with the restaurants heaving sujmmer gardens.

    The church was partially under renovation, and the cover was imaginative, showing the originaly view of the church.
    The inner building is a bit dark -for those who are used to big open spaces in churches- but this is a church dating back from Roman style, rebuilt severaly times.
    Inside there is the famous Madonna paiting, the frescos, etc
    Look for the actual Roman tombstone pieces from the outside, on the (Northern?) wall!

    The beautiful Baroque monument was erected in 1731 on the orders of the Hungarian Monarch as conciliation for the damage to the holy sacrament during the capture of a fugitive soldier by the King's troops.

    The monument consists of statues of angels carrying the ark. The angels standing on a beautifully decorated base. On top of the ark is a replica golden monstrance (which was destroyed during the scuffle) with a golden lamb inside it.

    It is one of the most beautiful Baroque monuments in the city and is definitely worth a visit.

    It is the best idea in Gyor to visit this area, as the most wonderful buildings are here, in one area. Majority of them are renovated, streets are spotlessly clean, only passengers can come here, no cars.
    Many tourist attractions are here, go and see it with your own eyes!

    The seventeenth century monument commemorates the recapture of Hungary from the Turks. A statue of virgin Mary wearing the Hungarian crown and holding the infant Jesus in her arm stands on top of a high column. The column stands on a square base with statues of Saints at each corner. The base is decorated with floral designs and surrounded by a balustrade.

    The column stands in one of the main squares of the city surrounded by restaurants and historical buildings and is definitely worth a visit.

    The bronze statue of the famous Hungarian dramatist stands on a simple square pedestal in front of the Carmelite church in the old town of Gyor. The poet is portrayed in a standing pose holding a book in his left hand.

    It is worth a short visit as part of a tour of the old town.

    The square located in the old town was the location of one of the city gates of Gyor. Now it is home to the Carmelite church and the statue of famous Hungarian artist Kisfaludy Karoly.

    Worth a short visit as part of a tour of the old town.

    The beautiful statue located on Chapter hill depicts the archangel defeating the Satan. It is worth a short visit as part of a tour of the old town.

    The Vastusko (Iron Stump) is believed the be a remnant from guilds' era but actually it is simply a clever hack :-) It is actually a name plate for the tradesman who has been working in that building
