The trivia that accompanies this building is of greater interest than its present-day contents – a small art gallery. A certain diminutive French conqueror spent the night here on 31 August 1809 after his troops took the castle and wrecked it. Why did Monsieur Bonaparte choose Győr to make his grand entrée into Hungary? Apparently the city was near a battle site and an inscription on the Arc de Triomphe in Paris recalls ‘la bataille de Raab ’.
