A brief annotation
Somogyvár-Kupavár is a complex place of national remembrance for Hungarian history. It’s associated with the cult of the knight king St. Ladislaus, who consecrated there a church and monastery in 1091, probably built as his final resting place. National memorials are dedicated to commemorate Hungary’s national identity and its intellectual, cultural and scientific achievements.
