We are visiting Esztergom, a historic town in northern Hungary, on the right bank of the Danube River. It was once the capital of the country and the seat of its first king, St Stephen. It is also the center of the Roman Catholic Church in Hungary, with its majestic basilica, the largest church in Central Europe, dominating the skyline. We are here to explore its rich cultural and religious heritage, as well as enjoy its scenic location in the Danube Bend region.
Esztergom offers us many attractions, such as the Christian Museum, which houses the largest and finest collection of ecclesiastical art in Hungary; the Castle Museum, which displays the remains of the royal palace and its history; the Öziçeli Hacci Ibrahim Mosque, which is a rare example of Ottoman architecture in Hungary; and the Mária Valéria Bridge, which connects Esztergom with its Slovakian twin town of Štúrovo.
Esztergom is a town that combines history, culture, religion, and nature in a unique way. It is a place that inspires awe and wonder in us who appreciate its charm and significance. We are happy to be here and experience its spirit and legacy.
