Veszprém, the city of Queens

Veszprém – the origin of the name

The origin name of the city was Bezprem, which is a Slavin origin compound word. Its meaning is bumpy by our philologist. The myth name explanation of Bonfini (historian of King Matthias), which is the remembrance of Queen Gizella, is this: Queen Gizella had put away from the precious stones ornamented fur coat with this shout: “Vessz, prém!”, in order to conduce to the building cost of Saint Michael’s Cathedral. That opinion was widespread: Veszprém name came from the city’s fountain, the Fehér kút’s German name: “Weissbrunn”.
