What awaits you

On the way to the first stop, Esztergom, you will learn about the history of Budapest: its formation as the capital of Hungary, and about the northern part of the city, which in ancient times belonged to the Roman Empire. And I will also talk about the flora, fauna, agriculture and national cuisine of the country.

Esztergom - the ancient capital and the Hungarian Vatican 46 km from Budapest - and you will be greeted by the city of Esztergom, where our main goal is the monumental (all travelers note its size) Basilica of St. Adalbert on a high hill. You will learn about the construction of this first cathedral in Hungary and the spread of Roman Catholicism throughout the country. Inside, admire the interiors of the basilica, hear about the outstanding people buried in the crypt, and about the peculiarities of the altar

Ruins and secrets of Visegrad In the 13th century, the Hungarian kings chose the Danube bend for the construction of the powerful Visegrad fortress - from here the best view of the surroundings opened. As you admire the stunning scenery, you will explore the ruins of the citadel, learn about the sieges it withstood and the destruction of the Habsburgs. We will pay special attention to the preserved tower of Solomon - according to legend, Vlad Dracula was imprisoned behind its walls 8 meters thick

Mediterranean atmosphere of Szentendre Cozy Szentendre will inspire you as artists, sculptors and writers who once lived here. Walking through the curving cobbled streets, you will appreciate the diversity of local architecture, from Orthodox and Catholic churches to rainbow-colored Baroque houses. And the walk will be filled with stories about the formation of Szentendre, about his connection with the Balkan peoples and about local crafts. In addition, you will visit the marzipan museum and taste Hungarian wine. After a city tour and lunch, you will have free time to look into the traditional shops of the city craftsmen.
