The beginning of May is a special time of the year for us who are living in Veszprém: Around the 7th May, which is the name-day of Gisela, we remember the wife of our first king, Saint Stephen, Blessed Gisela of Bavaria, Queen of Hungary. Our city had been the property of the Hungarian Queens since thousand years, when King Saint Stephen had donated the town to his Queen, Gisela.
