Bécsi Kapu Square

The square was once home to one of the town gates, the Vienna Gate, from here it takes its name: “Vienna Gate Square”.

CARMELITE CHURCH: Completed in 1725, one of the peculiarities of the Carmelite church and monastery is a Baroque St. Mary statue located in one of the small chambers. We can also admire the church’s beautiful Baroque interior and the black chapel, built on the model of the Loreto chapel.

SCULPTURE OF KISFALUDY: The sculpture of the famous writer has attracted a number of local legends. If we are not careful enough and park in the red zone, he jots down the number plate, while students who are late from school are not safe from his notebook either.

CASTLE, CANNONS: The Castle in its current shape and form originates from the 16th and 17th centuries. One of its peculiarities is the “Füles bástya” (New Bastion), which proved as a handy instrument while defending the castle from the Turks.

RADÓ ISLAND: Located in between the two arms of the river Rába, the island is a popular rest area among locals and home to the country’s oldest boathouse.

SYNAGOGUE: Today, one of Hungary’s largest Neolog synagogues (1870) is a concert and event hall that houses the private collection of János Vasilescu Sr., showcasing the visual art of the 20th-century Hungary.

A DETOUR TO KIRÁLY STREET: The building under number 4 was named after a famous guest, Napoleon. The emperor “left” a keepsake after the battle of 1809; vigilant bystanders can find a cannon ball he had thrown to the opposite side of the street.
