    Esztergom Castle castle where we no longer say there's not much left, but in the case of a small mosque and Minaret rundown and renovations. Let Us Come To The Cathedral; first photos of that side either through Slovakia. Then we started to move towards the Cathedral by Hungary. Eight-column main entrance welcomes you to walk out of the way. We walked around the Cathedral walk on the right side. Watching the Danube river views of the Cathedral on the left side of the door. When you remove your head up when we get inside the Basilica on the right side a big org welcomes you with. When you turn left, direction Fite room prayer places and pictures on the opposite side is the clergy sat on a table and chairs, and a beautiful acoustic affects people.

    Absolutely incredible beauty. History on history. The walk to the top of tower could be very difficult for some, but well worth it if you are physically able. The art is incredible and the grounds are charming. Very wide columns and great for many photos. They crypts are also a must-see. After going once, I brought my parents and my in-laws back. Worth the trip.

    One of the biggest basilica in Europe, absolutely recommended! Go up to the panorama room or to the top!

    Another Central European baroque basilica. A lot of gold and marble but no soul. The best the views from the top.

    This is a very beautiful historical place, be sure to go up to the dome of the basilica to view the circular panorama, the beautiful Danube and the bridge leading to Slovakia.

    Don't judge it by the picture. It's so huge it'll leave you in awe for hours. If you think you were in for a surprise at the ground floor. Wait till you get on top of the dome.
