is joining the guests in Budapest.
Bend Tour (full day)
Driving through the capital city of Hungary we leave
for wonderful landscape, for traditional buildings and for history to
visit the Danube Bend. On the northern part of the country for a few
kilometres the river Danube is the natural border between Hungary and
Slovakia. During this tour in Hungary the first stop is in the city of
archbishops, in Esztergom, which is just situated on the border. It is a
really historical town. The first king in Hungary - St. Stephan – was
born here and crowned in 1000. The very first roman-catholic church was
built here as well. During the centuries ruined but rebuilt - today you
can visit the largest roman-catholic church of Hungary, the Basilica of
The next town to visit is Visegrad. The castle from
the 13th century is on the very top of the hill and from
there one can get a nice view to the whole bend. This bend is the
largest turn all along the river Danube. It is like a big „S”. It is
really worth to see! For lunch we take the guests to a local restaurant.
Thy get a three-course menu made of typical Hungarian dishes.
The last stop is at the friendly artists’ town, at
Szentendre. Just like in the Mediterranean countries, the village is on
a hill and all the streets run down to the water. Here we can have a
walk along the narrow streets or along the Danube on the promenade. One
can enjoy the romantic feeling among the 18th century baroque houses.
We show our guests the town – they can walk along the
main street to the centre of the old town. On the main square there are
the holy trinity monument and the oldest Serbian orthodox church in
Hungary. Along the narrowest street they can reach the top of a small
hill and have a look at the area.
this final stop guests still have the time to do some shopping and to
have some free time
