We drive from Budapest to Esztergom, the cradle of Hungarian statehood, to visit the largest Basilica of the country. The view of the Danube Bend and the Maria Valeria Bridge that leads to Slovakia is very nice. From Esztergom we go to Visegrad to visit the Castle that also had a very important role in Hungarian history. The exhibition of the Castle gives you an insight into the knighthood of different centuries, the history of the country and the life of people in the 14th-15th century. While going up to the castle we can enjoy a fascinating view of the Danube.
We stop at a pleasant restaurant for lunch before continuing our trip to the scenic Baroque town of Szentendre. We stroll along narrow streets, among small, colourful houses, passing by art galleries and lovely churches. We walk up to the little hill of the village from where we can enjoy nice panorama, rooftops, surrounding hills and the Danube.
We visit the Marzipan museum where you can see fairy tale scenes, flowers, famous historic figures, the model of the Parliament – all made of marzipan.
You will have the opportunity to do shopping or visit the Kovacs Margit Ceramic Museum if you are interested.
We drive back to Budapest.
