The festival has many wonders in store, and not just for adults. For several years now, they have held a drawing competition for local primary and secondary school students, involving drawing and colouring Veszprém’s two iconic buildings (the Fire Tower and City Hall). Winners are awarded a great honour: during certain evenings of the Rosé, Riesling and Jazz Days, the finest works of art are projected onto the buildings in question.
While in Veszprém, don’t miss these
There is a lot more to see in Veszprém than just the festival, of course. The town has so many exciting sights to offer:
· Explore Veszprém Castle, home of both ancient ecclesiastical artefacts and modern works of art.
· Take a look at the masterpieces of contemporary Hungarian and international art in the László Vass Collection of the Modern Art Gallery, as well as the Dubniczay Palace and the Csikász Gallery. Also make sure you don’t miss the brick exhibition – Tegularium – either.
· Visit one of the earliest Hungarian exhibition spots, the Bakony Folk House, and pop in to the Laczkó Dezső Museum.
· Or if you’re in the mood for some lighter entertainment, wander through the first rural zoo in Hungary, the Veszprém Zoo, where you will find more than 500 animals from over 150 different species, all living together in harmony.
· Go take in one of the exciting games of the MVM Veszprém handball team, and cheer for the athletes in the magnificent building of Veszprém Arena.
