Esztergom

Esztergom, the old historical city built on the bank of Danube already in the 10th century. Geza, the ruling prince of Hungarians made the Esztergom his residence and thus the capital of newly established Hungarian monarchy. St. Stephen of Hungary, the son of Geza, was born here. It was the capital of Hungary until the 13th century when the king Bela IV decided to move his seat to Buda.

The most famous and important building is the Primatial Basilica build on the small hill above the Danube, with a nice view across the river to Slovakia. This is a seat of the Hungarian Catholic Church.
