Esztergom is located in the northern part of Hungary, less than fifty kilometres from the capital. It is situated on the banks of the Danube, with Slovakia lying on the other side of the river. A stay at an Esztergom hostel is a very affordable way to experience everything the area has to offer.

Esztergom is a place that abounds with both historic and religious sites and treasures. The town played an important role in the establishment of the Hungarian state a thousand years ago and used to be capital of Hungary until the thirteenth century. Accordingly, it is home to some of the scenes of the most important happenings in the country's history that can still be visited today. It was during the eleventh century that a castle was built in Esztergom, which served as the royal residence until the mid-thirteenth century. The ruins of the castle still stand, and walking on their walls can provide a nice glimpse into what Hungary was like during the early phases of its existence. Moreover, the view from the castle above the Danube bend and the nearby area is worth coming here for.

Next to the castle is the Basilica of Esztergom, which is the biggest church of Hungary. This is not a surprise, as Esztergom is also a very important religious centre and the seat of the Primate of the Roman Catholic Church. The Basilica boasts impressive dimensions -- besides its twenty-two-metre columns, one-hundred-metre top, and cuopolas that have an inner diametre of more than thirty-three metres, it has the world's largest altar-piece, made by the Italian artist Grigoletto. Although the admission to the cathedral itself is free, the small fee you have to pay to ascend to the top of the construction for some breathtaking views is totally worth it!

For those interested in religious history in more depth, Esztergom offers the Christian Museum on second floor of the neo-Renaissance Primates' Palace that also houses some Renaissance masterpieces by outstanding Italian artists.
