  • Very nice inside and out. If anyone can handle it and you can go to the spiral staircase in the canopy, don't miss the wonderful Vista is an unforgettable experience. I've been collecting and sore bokámmal strength went up but I do not regret it.

  • 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.

  • Plainer that some more Baroque cathedrals. Well worth a visit. It's a long, hard climb from the river, via stairs. There may be a road-train for the less able. After this we walked down the road to the town centre.
  • A gigantic basilica that is worth your time by being very beautiful both inside and out (it offers a nice sight of the Danube setting a natural border between Austria and Slovakia)
  • This place was a nice way to spend the afternoon! Such a great price to get a breathtaking view. We did the crypts and the dome/bell tower/viewing cafe. €3.
  • 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.
  • Big church. Its where king Stepehen baptized & crowned as king. Theres a nice view of danube river & can see Sturovo Slovakia from there.
