The place itself is beautiful and historical, the problem lays with the audioguide that is available. First of all, it does not repeat the text if you want to hear it again. Second, it starts speaking as soon as you walk in some area, so...More

Located about 30 minutes south of Gyor. Panoramic views from the abbey itself. Interesting commentary via audio headsets with additional details available based on the listener's level of interest. My wife and I came away pretty awed by what we saw.

Not something you see everyday, highly recommended to visit this historical place. We thought the entry fee was reasonable for what we got to see.
