This is one of the most marvellous regions of Hungary. We take a nice drive along the beautiful Danube river. We make three stops during this excursion: at Szentendre, Visegrád and Esztergom.
Esztergom was the first capital of Hungary, 1000 years ago. Our state founder, King St. Stephen, was born here.Today it’s the Head of the Hungarian Roman Catholic Church.Here we’ll visit the largest Chatedral in Central and Eastern Europe, including the crypt where Cardinal Mindszenty was reburied.
Visegrád is located in the middle of the Danube Bend.It was Hungary’s Royal Seat in the 14th and 15th centuries. There’s a fortress on the hilltop with a breathtaking view to the hair-pin turn of the Danube (despite the famous song, the river rarely looks blue from here…).The castle functions as a museum today where visitors can get an authentic mediaeval impression.
Szentendre is also known as an "artists' village." It has been favoured by many local atrists because of its friendly and picturesque ambience. Thanks to the former Serbian refugees, who originally came here to escape the Turkish/Ottoman invasions of Central Europe, there is a kind of Serbian atmosphere in the village even to this day. There are narrow, cobblestone streets, colourful houses with small courtyards, museums and lots of handycraft shops.The Marzipan Museum and the Museum of Micro Miracles are really must-see places.In case you are interested in something special, you can visit one of the local ceramics workshops. Look at him during work and you might even get the change to try it out, yourself!
The trip back to Budapest can be made on a boat, if you prefer.
