in Pula:  

The village has got a population of 220 and was built on the break line
between the Balaton-highlands and the southern range of Bakony. It is by
the road that connects Veszprém and Tapolca, 25 kms from Tapolca. Beside
the road leading to Öcs there is a rare natural resource, an oil shalemine,
where some several million-year-old fossils were found, one of which was
the sceleton of a 3 m long ancient rhinoceros. 70-80% of the inhabitants
are German, whose ancestors were settled by the Esterházy family in 1746.
Many of the houses preserved the German architectural traditions, for
example the sheds standing crosswise, closing down the yard. The Catholic
church was built in 1746 by Jakab Fellner in Baroque style commissioned by Count Károly Esterházy. The Saint Florian Chapel was built in 1773 and
renovated in 1993. There is a village museum in 35 Fő Street with a local
history collection. There are many cultural events in the village: concerts
in the church; celebrations on Florian and Midsummer day; giving home to
some of the events of the 'Valley of Arts' festival in July.
