Visegrád is one of the smallest and oldest towns of Hungary. It lies right on the Danube river. Due to the steep hill, Visegrád castle was one of Hungary’s strongholds and royal seat for 200 years. On top of the hill, the ruins of the kings's fort offers a great view on the Danube Bend. The castle has interesting exhibitions on local life. The Royal Palace is harmoniously renovated - it was dug out from under the earth and put together like a Jigsaw puzzle – something not to miss! This palace was the birthplace of the Visegrád Group: in 1335 the Hungarian king invited rulers of Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia – and these same countries remade their alliance here, also called the Visegrád Four, 650 years later!
On Visegrád hill you can try the summer toboggan, fun for kids…
Visegrád is part of the Danube Bend Tour: it can be visited together with Szentendre and Esztergom.
