Destination Details

Nagyvázsony, Hungary

 

Nagyvázsony is a village in Veszprém county, Hungary.

A superb panorama opens onto the neighbouring countryside from the 29-m high tower of the castle of Pál Kinizsi (1446-1494), who became a commander of the castle and the favourite general of King Matthias Corvinus. The Fortress Museum (9 Vár utca) details the history of the castle and excavation works. Kinizsi's sarcophagus can be seen in the chapel of the castle. The interior of St. Stephen's Church (148 Rákóczi utca) is a relic of the 15th century. The 18th-century Zichy Palace is a hotel today (12 Kossuth utca). The Post Office Museum (3 Temető utca) houses an exhibition of the history of postal services and telecommunication. The thatched Schumacher House (21 Bercsényi Miklós u.) under a gabled roof evokes the home of a weaver of old times, while several tools from a coppersmith's shop are on display in the stable.
