Castle Casamate – Lapidarium

A collection mostly comprising Roman tombs and carved stone from modern times is on display in the underground chambers of the Sforza half-bastion and casemates.

The exhibition includes the former city gate, the Fehérvár Gate, which was exploded on 28 March 1598 by the Hungarian army led by Mikós Pálffy and Adolf Schwarzenberg, when the town was recaptured from Turk occupation.

Iron Stump house

One of the most iconic buildings of Győr can be found at the west side of the Széchenyi Square, under house number 4.

The house dates back to the 16th century and was owned by the magistrates of the town. One of them, namely Orbán Gindl was the one who has the second floor built.

It is not only unique because of the two storied, cylindrical shaped corner balcony, but also due to its particular trade-sign. This stump – covered with iron and blacksmith nails – is connected to one of the legends about Győr.

In the 19th century, everyone was familiar with Vienna’s Iron Stump, the Stock im Eisen near the Stephansdom. Mátyás Zittritsch took advantage of this when he made this Iron Stump of Győr in 1829. He placed it in front of another house in the square, and four years later, when he bought this building, he brought the Iron Stump with him. This is the reason why it is used to be called the Iron Stump House. Mátyás Zittritsch was a grocer and in 1833 he opened a spicery in the building.

According to the legend, traveling young craftsmen hit the blacksmith nails into this stump. This story is possibly true for the original iron stump in Vienna. As for the iron stump in Győr, it is more likely that Mr. Zittritsch made it with all the nails in it. This iron stump became an iconic symbol of Győr, just as the other one did in Vienna.

The entrance to the building is from Lajos Stelzer Street, where we can see a small built-in balcony. After the renovation in the 1980s, the collection of Imre Patkó moved here. This collection is part of the Rómer Flóris Art and Historical Museum’s permanent exhibitions.

Borsos House

The late-Gothic heritage building is home to the life work exhibition of the late sculptor Miklós Borsos (1906–1990), a collection that gives an overview of the artist’s complete artistic creation and achievements.



As a truly unique feature in Hungary, the Children’s Workshop brings to life various artefacts, famous artists and artistic periods. The museum and workshop offer children between the ages of 3 and 12 a fun yet educational cultural experience.

Napoleon House

Originally built in the 17th century and receiving its current Baroque look in 1767, this building was named after one of its most famous guests, Napoleon. Today it is a temporary exhibition hall for displaying contemporary Hungarian and universal works of fine arts. The exhibition hall is open to visitors during temporary exhibitions.

Hungarian Ispita

Originally a spital, this 18th-century heritage building houses the private collection of the late art historian Dr. Péter Váczy (1904–1994). The collection comprises Renaissance and Baroque furniture and works of fine and applied arts.

Visitors can also find Greek, Roman and Hungarian archaeological remains from the Middle Ages, a Chinese tri-layer terra-cotta tomb-guarding warrior, Oriental rugs from the 19th century, glass, silver and bronze artefacts, Chinese ceramic ware, chandeliers and wall fittings. The building is also home to exhibitions consisting of artwork created by contemporary artists.

Fruhmann House

Situated in the former family home of the Fruhmann family, the museum showcases the history of the tile-stove building craft in the Győr region inside authentic interiors.

The tilestove workshop, built originally in the early-20th century, is awaiting visitors restored to its original state, while the renovated family home features an exhibition showcasing the local history of the art of tile-stove making in Győr. A stove collection, collected by Antal Fruhmann, is on display in a separate pavilion. Made complete by three separate exhibitions, the museum offers an exquisite showcase of the once-flourishing art of the tile-stove building craft in Hungary.

Esterházy Palace

This 18th-century historical building used to be a palace owned by the Esterházy family in Győr. Its façade is still bearing the family crest featuring the original owner’s initials. The decorated building is the main location of the Flóris Rómer Art and Historical Museum, home of the permanent exhibition of the Dr. Béla Radnai private collection and various temporary displays.

Kovács Margit Permanent Exhibition

The 17th-century heritage building was originally the house of spice tradesman János Kreszta, and is now home to the collection of Győr-born ceramic artist Margit Kovács (1902-1977), considered as the founder of modern ceramic art in Hungary. Along with the one located in Szentendre, the exhibition in Győr stands out as one of the only two places in the country where the artist’s folklore-influenced sculptures, statuettes and biblical compositions are on display.
