Hungarian Danube

Hungarian Danube

Upon entering Hungary, the most picturesque part of the Hungarian stretch of the Danube opens up with the Danube Bend between Esztergom and Szendtendre. The walls of the former castle, the basilica of Esztergom and the silhouette of the small town tower venerably over the right bank of the Danube. The small town of Szentendre, with its Mediterranean atmosphere, is very popular with both artists and tourists. On the lower course of the Danube is the town of Mohács, known mainly for the "Busójárás", a folk custom of burying winter and welcoming spring. In Budapest, the capital of Hungary, the river separates the two districts of Buda and Pest. The only spa capital in the world has a beautiful location and offers numerous sights, such as the Castle District, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with the Danube panorama and Andrássy Street, the Parliament, St. Stephen's Basilica, the Millennium Monument in Heroes' Square, the City Park with Vajdahunyad Castle, Margaret Island and much more. The Palace of Arts, the Opera House and the Academy of Music offer unforgettable experiences for music lovers. In Hungary, the Danube also formed the limes of the Roman Empire. In the approximately 500 kilometer long course of the Pannonian Limes, forts, watchtowers and legion camps are lined up one after the other. Today, the former protection and traffic routes are used for tourism.
