Full description
Esztergom was the birthplace and coronation site of St. Stephen, the first Hungarian king, and has a history dating back well over a thousand years.

On this 11-hour excursion you’ll cruise to Esztergom from Budapest along the Danube River, and you’ll have time to visit the city’s famous churches and monuments before the return cruise to Budapest.

In Esztergom, which had become a significant cultural, academic, and religious center by the early 20th century, you’ll find the Basilica, which is one of the most important buildings of Hungarian Classicism and contains numerous religious relics.

In the narrow, twisting streets within the city walls are remnants of Turkish mosques and baths. Most of the city's architectural monuments are also of the religious type, confirming the role of the city as a religious center.

Visit the Bálint Balassa Museum, the Primate Palace, and the Christian Museum, where on the top floor of the palace, you can admire a rich collection of medieval paintings and applied arts.
