The wonders of the Danube Bend
Budapest cyclists’ favourite routes lead to the Danube Bend. One such road lies between Budapest and Szob. On the way, you can stop at Vác, also known as the gate to Danube Bend, where you can admire the buildings of the Main Square and the Church of the Whites. You can also see the only triumphal arch in the country, which was erected in honour of Maria Theresa, and you can boost your energy with tasty snacks and delicious sweets. Zebegény is another place you should definitely stop off. You can relax on the banks of the Danube, see the Roman Catholic church and the Rock Chapel, or simply immerse yourself in the romantic atmosphere of the village. The bike path runs almost all the way along the river bank and crosses the territory of the Danube-Ipoly National Park several times.
But cycling on the other side of the Danube is also a good idea. You’ll need more than just a few days to see the sights of the route between Budapest and Esztergom. Szentendre and the Visegrád citadel are worth a visit, but the Esztergom Basilica is also a must-see. Between the two landmarks, the breathtaking landscapes of the Pilis and Visegrád Mountains and the panorama of the Danube Bend ensure some unforgettable moments.
