One of the most beautiful baroque palaces of the city is located in the Inner City, built in 1784 by Pál Almásy, a local nobleman who played significant role in the city. In 1934 the building ‒ known by the locals as the Crown-House (in March 1806, during the Napoleon wars, the Holy Crown was moved to Gyöngyös, to be hidden in the Almásy Palace) ‒ was bought by the diocese of St. Bartholomew Church for 40 000 pengő, partly paid from public donation. continue
