King’s Chapel

Count József Cziráky erected a memorial chapel in 1931 on the site where the last Hungarian king’s plane landed on 20 October 1921. The quote from the scriptures which can be seen above the entrance of the domed, circular building also refers to the unsuccessful coup by the king: In propria venit et sui eum non receperunt (He came unto his own, and his own received him not). Detailed information on the beatification of King Charles IV in 2004, illustrated with photos, is given on a sign in front of the avenue leading to the chapel.
