In a nutshell of Vác. “Vác has been a diocesan center since medieval era. The town situated on the eastern bank of the River Danube. It was an important river crossing and famous trade center. Life in this flourishing small town was completely wiped out during the Turkish subjection. The Turkish army burned the buildings and blew up the castle before their withdrawal. The town, liberated in 1686, with left in ruins. Only a few could survive by hiding in small chambers and wine-cellars in the neighbourhood. The bishop had a major role in rebuilding and repopulation the town. Bishop Mihály Dvornikovics had Catholic artisan families settled from German, Czech and Moravian regions, promising them certain preferences. Thereafter Vác began to develop and flourish. Beside the organized resettlement, some of the old families in refuge returned and further families arrived in the hope of more favorable opportunities.
The Rákóczi war of independence put an end to then town’s development for a while. The Habsburg troops occupied Vác in 1707. In 1709 the Serbian mercenaries serving th Habsburgs ravaged the town and caused even more devastation than the Turkish.
In 1730 2/3 of the town burned down. The soldiers returning from the war against the Turkish army brought back the plague, which reached Vác in 1740. The epidemic took 10% of the population. The hospital and pharmacy were built at 1763. Maria Theresa visited Vác in 1764, which proved to be of great significance for the life of the town.Following the royal visit the town continued to grow.
