File 140 – Esztrgom, Hungary – Esztrgom Cathedral – Cathedral Of Hungarian Kings
The first cathedral was built between 1001 and 1010, by the founder of the Hungarian kingdom, Stefan I. All the Hungarian kings were crowned here. Esztergom is the oldest settlement in Hungary (972), and between 10 and 13 centuries, it was the capital of the Hungarian kingdom. The cathedral is the largest in Hungary, with an area of 5600 square meters and a height of 100 meters. Here we can find the largest painting in the world, made on canvas (13×6 meters) and an organ pipe which is the third largest in Europe, after Passau (Germany) and Liverpool (England).
