Dunakapu Square
The Dunakapu square is one of the 3 iconic squares of Győr. It is bordered by the Mosoni-Danube river on the north. It got its name after the gate of the old castle that was the Danube ("Duna") gate which is mentioned as "Vízi" gate (Water-gate) in the old city lexicons.
Széchenyi Square
The square has always been the center and the heart of Győr. The historical life of Győr happened here: markets, official functions, lawsuits, and even executions. The wives of the mill workers sold their wheat floured loaves and breads here also.

Chapter Hill
Chapter Hill is the oldest part of Győr. The whole area is where the castle stood in the Middle Ages. There were more streets on Chapter Hill with little opening alleys toward the Danube in the 17th-18th century which were built in later. Now the Chapter Hill has two squares (Apor Vilmos Püspök square and Gutenberg square) and only one street, called the "Chapter Hill".
Bécsi kapu Square
It is one of the most beautiful squares in Győr. Nearly all of the buildings are monuments with baroque, Louis Seize styled and early classicism styled elevation. Located on the eastern side of the square is the Ott House known for its elevation. The elevation is one floor higher than the building itself.

Pannonhalma Abbey (UNESCO World Heritage)
The Millenary Benedictine Abbey of Pannonhalma and its Natural Environment was the first Hungarian Christian monastery and has been influential in the spread of Christianity over Central Europe.
Built on the Sacred Hill of Pannonia, the monastery was founded in 996 when Hungary was primarily a pagan culture. It's an example of an early Christian monastery that still is in use by Benedictine monks. The complex also holds educational buildings, a forest and botanical and herbal gardens.
