Travel Tips from people who've been to Esztergom
Esztergom is the seat of the Roman Catholic Primate of Hungary, the Archbishop of Esztergom. EsztergomThe Cathedral is the largest church in the country. Rebuilt in the 19th century in Classical style, it has the largest altar-piece in the world painted on a single piece of canvas. The famous Bakócz Chapel was built of red marble at the beginning of the 16th century. The Cathedral Treasury holds the richest collection of Hungarian ecclesiastical treasures.
I recommend to visit this beautiful and old city which played an important role in Hungary's history. Its centre and cathedral are impressive and you have the possibility to walk through the Mária Valéria bridge (over the Danube) to Párkány, Slovakia.
