Only 2hrs from Bratislava lies one of the oldest Hungarian towns – Esztergom, former capital city now the seat of the Hungary. Nicknamed as “Hungarian Rome” or “City of St. Stephen”.
The Basilica of Esztergom, a masterpiece of Classicism, is the third largest church in Europe. Established around 972 AD, Esztergom has always played an important role in Hungary’s history.
It was the birth and coronation place of the first Hungarian king, St. Stephen, as well as the capital of Hungary until the 13th century.
After the Mongolian invasion, King Bela IV moved the Royal Seat to Visegrad and later to Buda, giving his palace to the archbishop and making Esztergom a religious center.
