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. King Mathias, the righteous started to improve the town with building operations and we can say that this was the golden age of Visegrád. Since that it has been a place for many historical events and now is a very popular tourist destination.
These are the things you should visit if you are in Visegrád:
