Headquarters of the Veszprém Regional Centre of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (VEAB)

The headquarters of VEAB, the Veszprém Academic Headquarters is at 37 Vár utca in the former house of Canon Dravecz built between 1769 and 1773 in Louis-seize style. The historic building originally owned by the Church was secularized in 1953 and put into the charge of the town council. At first it housed a primary school, later private flats. Administratively, it was handed over to the Academic Centre in 1975. The building, after being converted and restored, was officially inaugurated on 19 July 1978.
