Description

Vác is the seat of the bishopric founded by St Stephen, in whose cathedral our King Géza I was buried. During the Renaissance, Bishop Miklós Báthori had a splendid palace built here, and his famous library was admired by his contemporaries. During the Ottoman rule, the castle and the town were almost razed to the ground by the hordes of conquerors, but later the bishops rebuilt it splendidly. Vác became a quiet little town, and only the young people of the reform era discovered this refreshing place to visit. And the country's first Pest-Vac railway line was also the place where the greatest Hungarian, István Széchenyi, and the ardent poet Sándor Petőfi travelled.
