Esztergom, Hungary Cruise Port

Esztergom is a city located in Northern Hungary. It is widely known as the seat of the Hungarian Catholic Church. The city is one of the oldest towns in the country and it is important to the region’s history. It was the former capital city of Hungary between the 10th to mid-13th century, and it is the place of birth and coronation of St. Stephen, who was the first Hungarian ruler. However, King Bela IV decided to move the Royal seat after the Mongolian Invasion and he gave his palace to the archbishop. As a result, Esztergom was then made a religious center and elements of religion are reflected in most of the historic sites and the overall architecture of the city. Featured below are some of the recommended experiences and activities that visitors can enjoy after cruising to Esztergom, Hungary:
 
  • Visitors interested in learning about the country's rich religious history should visit the Christian Museum, also known as Kereszteny Muzeum because it is considered to be the country's largest ecclesiastical collection and has exhibits of Hungarian and European works of art that date back to the 13th-19th century.
     
  • People who are interested in the county's architectural heritage should visit the Esztergom Basilica because it is the nation's seat of the Catholic Church and also revels in being the very first cathedral built in the country. The church is also historically significant to the region.
     
  • Due to the city's close proximity to the Danube river, there is a Danube Museum that displays exhibits on all aspects relating to the history and use of the country's mightiest river. Visitors should not miss out on this informational tour, which is highly recommended for history enthusiasts and is family friendly.
     
  • Architecture fanatics will have much to admire in this beautiful city with structures like the Maria Valeria Bridge that connects Esztergom to Sturovo, a Slovakian city. The historic bridge was destroyed in the Second World War, but it was rebuilt and reopened in 2002.
