Tales of the downtown houses
We go for a 1,5 hour walk in the downtown.
As the second richest town in historic buildings after Budapest, Győr won the Europe Award in acknowledgement of its protection of the historic buildings and the reconstruction of the Baroque centre of the town. Churches, palaces, museums, characteristic corner balconies and narrow lanes, all reminders of a historic past invite visitors to take a walk in the centre of the town.
Taste the Hungarian National Drink with us!
Clinking with a summer spritzer on a 2 hour tour.
The city of ‘fröccs’ (wine spritzer)
We tell you the story of this popular drink and walk to the big soda siphon fountain. Ányos Jedlik, a Benedictine monk in Győr made great steps towards the largescale distribution and bottling the soda water. He surprisingly combined the soda water with wine, so he is now considered to be the inventor of the wine spritzer, the ‘fröccs’.
