Archbishops Palace and Visitor Center

The impressive Baroque style Archbishop's Palace Cultural, Touristic and Visitor Centre offering a special church arts exhibition opened its gates to visitors in February 2016. In the exhibition you can have a glimpse in the every day life of bishops, archbishops who financed architectural constructions and supported fine arts besides their church coordinating activities during the centuries. The proof of it can be seen in the exhibition. The objects connected to masses or celebrations reflect on another part of their complex leader role. A special emphasis was payed on showing spaces of their private life, private piety, prayers to visitors - bringing the life of the followers of Christ nearer the public, addressing everyone.
