Discovering the most beautiful little towns along the Danube river


I'll take you to the northern part of Hungary, the Danube Bend region is the most beautiful and the most romantic part of Hungary. That's where the Danube loops south, it's surrounded by amazing hills and mountains forming a heart shape. We'll see lovely little towns which once had been of great historical importance. The Danube Bend tour is about Hungary's history and culture and it's also about the picturesque views all along the Danube river.

Esztergom is a 1-hour drive from Budapest, it's situated on the Slovakian border. The town was the cradle of the Hungarian Catholic church and we'll visit the biggest church of the country, the Esztergom Basilica. We'll see the town of Visegrád a former capital of Hungary, a royal residence. I'll show you around the ruins of the extensive complex of medieval castles. Our last stop is Szentendre, a little artists' village which inspired many Hungarian painters and sculptors. The village has a really unique Mediterranean atmosphere and stunning Baroque architecture.

I'll meet you in the hotel lobby. We'll drive to the little village of Dobogókő so that I can show you the beautiful hills and mountains surrounding the Danube Bend.
