This excursion is the most popular tour to the countryside of Hungary. During this tour we take you to the northern part of Hungary, the picturesque Danube bend.
There are 3 famous historical places to visit:
Esztergom, which is the centre of the Roman Catholic Church and archbishopric seat of Hungary. More than 1000 years ago the first king of Hungary (St. Stephen) was born and crowned here later on. We visit the largest and most beautiful basilica of Hungary that was built in the middle of the 19th century.
Visegrád means good view. The magical fortress on the top of the hill, which was built in the 13th century, is the best panoramic point of the magical Danube bend. The river Danube makes the biggest turn at Visegrád all along the river. We explore the fortress and visit the historical and wax works exhibitions.
Szentendre (st. Andrew), the artist village, was named after its mediaeval patron saint. It is a typical Mediterranean village, situated on the slope of a hill, its small and narrow streets are running down to the river Danube. There are small shops, artists, cafés, restaurants and pubs. Your guide will take you around and tell you exciting stories about the history of Hungary. Optionally we can visit the Margaret Kovács Museum with the handcrafts of the Hungarian ceramical artist or the famous Confectionery Museum where you can see also the building of the House of Parliament made of marzipan.
Upon request, we can organize 3-course lunch with wine tasting in the National Wine Museum of Hungary. Afterwards, you have some time for shopping or enjoy some free time before returning to Budapest either by boat or by bus/car.
