I was born and raised in Budapest, our capital city and now I live in Nagymaros, a small quiet town located in the Danube Bend just opposite Visegrád. And of course I consider myself very lucky 'cause I feel at home in Budapest just as much as in the Danube Bend. I am also extremely lucky and proud to have gained firsthand knowledge from historians and archeologists through my many years of studies.
And I'm here to share it all with you but beware: my passion can be contagious. :) There's so much to see and do in Budapest and in the Danube Bend so I've put together a list of tours offering the best of every city.
Buda and Pest have so much to offer it's hard to know where to begin. Even if you only plan to spend a couple of days in Hungary there are sights that shouldn't be missed eg. the Buda Castle District one of the most beautiful and romantic parts of the city with famous sights like the Matthias Church or the Fishermen's Bastion.
But if you have more time I'd suggest visiting the countryside: the Danube Bend is less than an hour away from Budapest & it's one of Hungary's most frequently visited regions blessed with breathtaking scenery and fabulous architecture of different historical eras. Szentendre, Esztergom and Visegrád offer hours of fascination for visitors curious about the country's rich medieval history, castles, palaces and churches not to mention the fine restaurants, handmade crafts and art.
There are so many stories and so much to see that I can't wait to tell & show it all to you! :) Check out my tours and don't forget that all of them can be altered to suit your needs and interests. My -very much loved - job is to make your day special so join me on a trip to remember! :)
