Danube Bend at Visegrád

Danube Bend at Visegrád

Hungary

June 2012

Visegrád map

The Danube turns south at Visegrád, twenty miles north of Budapest. Above the small town with the ferry crossing and the creamy church stands the Vár, or castle, which offers a sensational view of the river and the wooded hills that mark both banks, up around the bend. The evening sunshine lit up the panorama. It was after five when we got there and though the man on the gate said it was zárva (closed), a bribe of 500 forints (less than two euros) was enough to get us in.
