Veszprém is a city with county rights in the Central Transdanubian region of Hungary. The historical

educational, religious and touristic centre of its region. The town has a well-developed Hungarian and
international commercial and industrial infrastructure, which is one of the reasons for the town’s
dynamic development. Owing to its historical past and its geographical location (from one side
surrounded by the hills of Bakony, on the other side by Lake Balaton) the town has a diverse cultural
life with great touristic potentials. The city has an active sport life both on professional
and amateur level, and can be proud of its sportsmen, sportswomen, teams and sport venues.
