About Pannonhalma Abbey, Gyor

Ideal for a day trip, this UNESCO world heritage site is located 20 kilometres away from Gyor and dates back to thousand years. Originally a fortress, this structure is the witness to the glorious history of Hungary and has a prominent place where important events took place. National movements, peace treaties, Turkish invasion, great fires and number of restorations make it an illustrated picture book of European art and history.

Displaying a huge era from Romanesque to classicism, this fortress of Hungarian Benedictines still has few reminisces of the old church in the crypt. Flaunting a priceless catalogue of library dating back to 1090, there are over 250,000 volumes in the library including the charter of the cloister from Stephen I dated 1001. Also, the earliest record of written Hungarian language is a matter of pride!

Worth a visit on the trip to Hungary!

Pannonhalma Abbey, Gyor Reviews

  • An interesting and rather unusual abbey as it's built with the most modern tools and style available at the time. The building itself is in a decent condition. The main attraction for me was their library, which looks amazing. Decent for class trips.

  • Historical place very well kept with audio tour guide. Beautiful library and amazing panorama.

  • Got there just as closing but got to see the free gallery and the place is high on a hill with great views.

  • Took a tour and after confusion of where to go, stumbled upon a beautiful library room but was met by a pigheaded inconsiderate old woman working there. After asking if she spoke English she proceeded to say the word "church" and point over and over again, getting impatient with me and raising her voice as if she were my mother. I became scared and felt uncomfortable so I turned around and went back out where she proceeded to yell at me. If you want tourists to come to your site and give you money, maybe learn some English and don't yell and point and roll your eyes. If you see her, run.

  • Looks imposing from far away. But once nearby it's a rather boring building. I ended up visiting the (tiny) souvenir shop offering lavender-based products.
