One of the newest ornamental fountains in downtown Győr, the 365 kg soda siphon was created by glass-maker László Hefter of Győr. Apart from the discovery of the dynamo principle, Ányos Jedlik is also credited with the basics of carbonated water production. The fountain is a testament to this discovery.

To the left of the entrance of the central bakery plant of the Lipóti Bakery, a nation-wide company, there is a statue of the breaking of bread. The central figure is an older rural woman wearing a headscarf.

Among the most important and famous establishments in the town of Lipót is the Lipóti Bakery established in 1992, which is a nationwide chain today.

During the other seasons, it can be seen by the ground floor entrance of the visitors' center. The central figure is a rural woman wearing a headscarf. In her left hand, she is holding a round loaf of bread and in her right, she has a knife with which she is about to cut the bread.

The bronze statue commemorates the fact that the first Hungarian sighting of the potato beetle, an insect that destroys the leaves of the potato plant, was in Hédervár in 1947. The plaque by the only statue in the country depicting a bug emphasizes that the artwork does not honor the pest, but rather the beginning of the organized protection of plants and crops which dates back to around the time when the potato beetle was discovered.

Intoxicating

There is almost everything on the tour’s drink menu: spritzer, wine, spirits, beer and, moreover, delicious cocktails. We show a few places in our local region where such tasty drinks can be found. In terms of the history of culture, we can be most proud of the spritzer, and we will find out the whys during the tour. Be careful while tasting and drink in moderation, as you are riding a bike!

 (We only mention in parentheses, if you wish to taste them, pay attention to the order, because you know: "Wine after beer, always - beer after wine, torments you.")
