The Archabbey of Pannonhalma is the center of the Hungarian Benedictine Congregation. Monks living here follow the Rule of Saint Benedict, having chosen this way of life to seek God in prayer and the communal life. The monastery is a place of encounter: an encounter with God, with others, with the past. In this place is fostered an atmosphere of openness, which enhances the dialogue between the traditions of the past and the present.
Györ, this mellow and colorful town is situated half way between Vienna and Budapest, and hosts a vast array of architectural, cultural and natural treasures. Györ, Hungary’s second richest town in historic buildings outside Budapest has won Europe-award for the protection of the historic buildings, in acknowledgment of the reconstruction of the Baroque center of the town. Churches, palaces, museums, characteristic corner-balconies and narrow lanes, all reminders of a historic past, invite visitors to take a walk in the center of the town. We can see sacral relics in and around Györ.
