Győr, Lébény and Pannonhalma Day Tour from Budapest

2. Győr, Lébény and Pannonhalma Day Tour from Budapest

Discover the beautiful baroque buildings of Győr on a scenic full-day tour from Budapest, complete with round-trip transfers from the city location of your choice. Apart from a short period of 4 years throughout its history, Győr remained free from Turkish occupation. Liberated in 1598, it was at the forefront of the artistic Baroque movement, which developed in the city earlier than Eastern settlements of Hungary. By the mid 1600s, Győr’s Baroque downtown was established. As you wander the streets, you will see typical bay and bow windows on corner houses, and the Bishop's Cathedral where the reliquary of Saint King Ladislaus I of Hungary is kept. Admire the Franciscan Church, and house that Napoleon stayed in while fighting the Battle of Győr. Esterhazy Palace is another fine example of Győr’s baroque design. Continue to nearby Lébény, which survived Mongol and Turkish invasions and maintains much of its medieval character. Its most famous monument is the Romanesque church of St. James, which you will visit before you drive to Pannonhalma. The 1,000-year-old Pannonhalma Archabbey is one of the most historical monuments of Hungary. Notable sites in the hilltop complex are the 13th-century Basilica, and Arboretum, while views extend across the vineyards of the Pannonhalma-Sokoróalja region.

We had a fantastic day trip to Győr, Lébény and Pannonhalma. Our guide, Ildikó, was great and provided so much information about the history of the towns, Hungary, the buildings, and about the architecture styles.

The trip was easy to book, went very smoothly, and was a lot of fun.
