In our weekly Instagram compilation, we are exploring a Hungarian city every Friday, to show you the most beautiful places outside Budapest. This time, we are traveling to Veszprém, one of the oldest urban areas in Hungary, with a rich history that stretcher back a thousand years. The city lies close to the northern shores of Balaton, making it an ideal tourist headquarters for the enchanting Bakony hill region. Veszprém was the favorite city of Queen Gisela, the wife of St. Stephen, hence its slogan: the ‘City of Queens’.
In the next addition to the series, we are again exploring beautiful parts of Hungary, outside the capital. Don’t forget to use #hungarytoday on Instagram to boost your chances of making it to next week’s compilation!
