Danube Bend – an excursion into Hungary's history. This is an unforgettable tour along the "Blue Danube" with stops in Esztergom, Visegrád and Szentendre.
Esztergom: It used to be the capital of Hungary and is still the centre of the Catholic Church. We visit the largest cathedral of Hungary (also burial place of famous cardinals, like Primate József Mindszenty). Afterwards, we glance across the river to Slovakia and enjoy the view over the Basilica.
Visegrád: After the Mongol invasion a new fortification was constructed here in the mid-13th century. Currently it is a museum (optional visit). The top of the hill offers a fascinating panorama on the Danube valley. After enjoying the view there is an opportunity to have lunch (not included in the price).
Szentendre: It is a small baroque city built on medieval ruins, located at the gate of the Danube Bend. The town is considered to be the Artists' Village or the Painters' Town. We walk around the historical centre and enjoy the cobblestoned narrow streets as well as the baroque houses. After the guided tour you can also visit some museums (for example the famous Margit Kovács Ceramic Museum or the Confectionery Museum with marzipan figures).During summer (May-September) we return to Budapest by boat.The tour ends in the city centre (pier) or at your hotel.
Boat service between Szentendre and Budapest is available every day from the 1st of May to the 30th of September (except Mondays). In case of low water and out of the season we return to Budapest by bus.
