The Danube knee is located north of Budapest and presents itself as a wonderful river landscape. Because of its untouched nature, the historic cities and the proximity to the state capital, the Danube knee is part of a popular holiday region.
Vacation on the Danube knee
Driving along the bank you can reach the town ... Visegrád at the foot of the Visegrader Mountains. The view inevitably falls on the ruins of the Renaissance Palace of King Matthias from the XV century, which impress the remains: fountain made of red marble, gardens with large fish ponds and arched arcade. In addition, the summer toboggan run and the thermal bath invites you to visit. The former coronation city of Esztergom - notes the oldest city in Hungary - is famous for their basilica and crypt and the Mária Valériabrücke. For a change, a trip from Visegrad to Esztergom with the steamship is therefore worthwhile.
Baroque town with flair ... In the south of the Danube knee there is finally the picturesque Szentendre with its carefully restored old town. With its winding streets and Serbian Orthodox churches, this village radiates a lot of sympathy and charm. A wonderful view of the roofs of Szentendre can be obtained from the castle hill, where the medieval parish church with its Gothic sundial can also be found. Despite its industrial periphery, the Baroque town of Vác has also retained its flair and is therefore a popular tourist destination. From here, plant lovers should definitely take the time to drive about 14 kilometers south. Because here, in the town of Vácrátót, the most beautiful botanical garden in Hungary is located.
