Esztergom

Esztergom

Esztergom is a city in the north of Hungary, on the right bank of the Danube river, which forms the border with Slovakia,  not very far from Budapest, and most accessible by city train.  I went there after lunch, walk around the town, visited their cathedral and some other important sites, and then returned to Budapest for supper.  Although the city seems to have been left behind, one can still appreciate the historicity of this place, which was once the capital of Hungary and the seat of the Primate of the Roman Catholic Church in the country.
