Reach the Visegrád Citadel by boat
More good news: between May and October, scheduled cruise boats travel to the site from Budapest Vigadó Square, also visiting other important historical towns besides the wonderful Visegrád. One example is Esztergom, with the country’s tallest church, the Esztergom Basilica, and the Hungarian National Museum’s Esztergom Castle Museum, or Szentendre whose winding cobble stoned streets, Mediterranean style downtown area and open-air museum delight young and old alike. In fact, from the ports of Visegrád, Vác or Esztergom, you can continue by pleasure boat. While in Visegrád, in addition to the old royal palace in the Lower Castle, the Salomon Tower and the nearby King Mathias Historical Playground, you should also visit the Court of Trades. Adrenaline-hunters should definitely go up the winding road to the 700-metre summer and alpine bobsled track next to the Zsitvay viewpoint on the tip of the Nagyvillám mountain. Speed lovers can even enjoy the sight of the Citadel when racing down the bobsled track and if you’re after more adventure, try the nearby adventure park, canopy or go-kart tracks.
