Visegrád

30 kms from Budapest lies a town that has been the kings’ residency for a long time in the Middle Ages. Visegrád was occupied by the romans, the celtics and the germanics as well. It was founded in 1009 and the Castle was built in the 1250s. The Holy Crown was kept in the treasury of the castle.
