Full Day Danube Bend Excursion Tour (8 hours)

The Danube Bend is the most impressive part of the river in Hungary. In that area the Danube sharply alters its eastward course and starts flowing southward.

The first stop is Esztergom, the most important ecclesiastical centre of the Hungarian Catholic Church. We visit the largest and most remarkable church of the country called Basilica of Esztergom, its treasury (the most important collection of ecclesiastical art in Hungary) and the tomb of cardinal Mindszenty in the crypt. The terrace behind the cathedral offers nice view of the Danube and Slovakia on the other riverbank.

The next stop is the small riverside village called Visegrád, where we visit the ruins of the medieval fortress from the 13th century on the hilltop. We walk through several reconstructed rooms with different expositions and enjoy the most beautiful panorama of the Danube Bend from the walls of the fortification.

We rest in a local restaurant and have a typical Hungarian lunch.

After a short drive we arrive in Szentendre, in a small baroque city with Mediterranean atmosphere. Because of its picturesque location, narrow, winding streets, churches, museums, souvenir shops and cafés it is a popular destination.

We walk to the main square in the centre, where most of the sights are located: the City Hall, the Greek Church and the oldest Catholic Church on the hilltop offering a beautiful view of the Danube and the surroundings. Afterwards you can enjoy a longer free time to visit some museums or do shopping along the main street. As an alternative we can visit the jewellery factory and shop called Caprice, where you have the chance to see diamonds, jewels and their fine producing processes during a short guided tour.
