Visit Esztergom in 2024

Esztergom, often referred to as the "City of St. Stephen," holds a unique place in Hungarian history. It was the birthplace of the first Hungarian king, St. Stephen, who also founded the archbishopric of Esztergom. The city's crown jewel is the Esztergom Basilica, the largest church in Hungary and one of the largest basilicas in Europe. Built in the Classicist style, the basilica contains a wealth of artistic treasures, including the largest altarpiece in the world, depicting the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
The city itself is charming, with winding streets, quaint squares, and views of the Danube that are truly picturesque. The Maria Valeria Bridge connects Esztergom with the Slovakian town of Štúrovo, making for a perfect cross-border day trip. The city also features several museums, including the Christian Museum, which houses an extensive collection of religious art. Boat tours along the Danube offer another perspective of the city's beauty, as well as the surrounding region.
