Coronation monument

Sopron is a coronation town, since in 1625 the coronation of Hungarian King Habsburg Ferdinand III took place in Sopron. The coronation monument commemorates this remarkable event.

The monument, erected in 1915 on the Bécsi Hill, was designed by the renowned architect of Sopron, the Ybl-award winning Oszkár Füredi. It marks the site of the notable historical event from December 1625. Ferdinand III, after being crowned in the Goat Church, made the traditional sword slashes to the four orientations with the sword of St. Stephen. Since then, the place has been called Coronation Hill, which is the only coronation hill in Hungary in its original condition.
