  • Visiting Veszprém County of Hungary has countless perks but one of its most outstanding ones is definitely Zirc Abbey (also known as “Zircz Abbey”, “Zircensis”, “Boccon”, or “A Ciszterci Rend Zirci Apátsága”). Following the Diocese of Veszprém humbly, the Cistercian abbey is believed to have been first commissioned by Béla III, King of Hungary in 1182. Sacked by the Ottomans, reacquired, abandoned, and, finally, resettled in 1989, the monastery currently maintains reliable residences in Baja, Eger, Székesfehérvár, Budapest, and Pécs. What’s interesting to know about it is that it has a significant library, a museum, and arboretum as well. Definitely a must-see!
