The town of Várpalota, which is situated halfway between two county seats, Székesfehérvár and Veszprém, is the historic jewels of Middle-Transdanubia and an important relic of the history of Hungarian industry. The town has a very rich and colourful historical past, several of its monuments are related with King Matthias, the Újlaky family and the battle of the border castles in the Turkish period. The most significant monument is the Újlaky castle, which has deservedly been the symbol of the town since the 14th century. Another remarkable sight is the Zichy mansion built according to the plans by Miklós Ybl, which was later rebuilt in neoclassical style. The building today houses the exhibition of the Trianon foundation, which attracts many visitors with historical relics.
