POSTCARD: The Benedictine Pannonhalma Archabbey is the most notable landmark in Pannonhalma and one of the oldest historical monuments in Hungary, founded in 996. It is located near the town, on top of a hill. Saint Martin of Tours is believed to have been born at the foot of this hill, hence its former name, Mount of Saint Martin, from which the monastery occasionally took the alternative name of Márton-hegyi Apátság. This is the second largest territorial abbey in the world, after the one in Monte Cassino. 1

STAMPS: The 2000 definitive stamp featuring antique furniture (Chair by Károly Nagy, 1935 / 19th Century Chair) and 2012 definitive tourism stamp with University of Debrecen.
