Two Hungarian cities ranked among the TOP10 of the most beautiful on the Danube

International recognition comes from a Spanish news portal which ranked two Hungarian towns among the 10 most beautiful towns on the Danube. Can you guess which ones?

The Spanish news portal Hola recently published an article about the Top10 of the most beautiful towns on the Danube.

The list includes two Hungarian cities: Budapest and Esztergom.


According to the news portal, the Danube is an impressive sight of the Hungarian capital that separates the two parts of the city: Buda Hill and bustling Pest. The article sheds light on the riverside promenade that has been selected as a UNESCO World Heritage Treasure.

It is dotted with architectural marvels such as Buda Castle, the Széchenyi Chain Bridge or the Hungarian Parliament. The portal offers to book a boat trip with a panoramic lunch or a candlelit dinner or to take the amphibious bus on the Danube. In addition to Budapest,

we can also be proud of Esztergom, described as the religious capital of Hungary.

According to the news portal, the must-sees of Esztergom are the Maria Valeria bridge marking the border with Slovakia, and the symbol of the city, the basilica which is one of the largest churches in Europe. Here we can also discover the old town, full of mansions along the Little Danube.

According to the list, in addition to the Hungarian capital and Esztergom, four Austrian cities (Vienna, Dürnstein, Linz, Melk), two German cities (Passau and Ulm), as well as the Slovak capital (Bratislava) and the Serbian capital (Belgrade) are also worth the detour if we float along the beautiful Danube.
