Castle, river, mountains...


I live in country without any big mountains, without so big river like Danube is and this trip to Visegrad let me to see flat Danube and stunning mountains.

In 1009 the first written source mentioned Visegrád as the bailiff seat founded by St. Stephen. The fortification system was erected after the Mongol invasion around 1250-1260 by Béla IV and his wife, Queen Mary. Later the castle was fortified by Chares Robert and more later by Matthias Hunyady, reconstructed it to palace.

The most interesting landmark of Visegrad is castle of Visegrad. This building can be seen on the big (about 350 meters) mountain, the panorama from this mountain then climbing to castle is fantastic - with the river, little town Visegrad, other mountains on the horizon.

So, I recommend you to go to this place, especially then visiting Budapest, because it is about 40 km from the capital of Hungary.

    Nice little page. Too bad the food in the feast is probably wax too. I could eat at least half of it right now.
