Colourful Art and Castle Ruins

Today, we’ll venture from Györ to Esztergom, the former royal and Roman Catholic seat. Esztergom’s notable attractions are the Basilica and the Castle ruins, both located in a strategic position dominating the Danube. Next, it’s on to Szentendre (St. Andrews), a lively village where talented artists have
established countless workshops and art galleries. Choose to visit the marzipan museum, or Blagovestenska Greek-Orthodox Church with its stunning interior. You may prefer to
