Pannonhalma Archabbey, Hungary

After Gyor, the next destination on our radar was Pannonhalma Abbey, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This spot is twenty kilometers south of Gyor. It is a 1000 years old monastery; today this monastery runs the best secondary school of Hungary. More than 300 students are boarders here and it is an important spiritual and educational center of Hungary.

One can get access to the interiors only if they take the guided tours. Guided tours are conducted every hour in English and local language alternately. We first watched a short movie on the life of monastic community there and history of this abbey; later a young student from the monastery guided us around telling us stories and significance of the place. The monastery is as old as Hungary itself; that makes it all the more a “precious heritage site”.
