The historical town Visegrád is located 43 km north of Budapest, in the Danube Bend region on Main Road 11, surrounded by the Pilis mountains. Famous for its historical monuments such as the Citadel, the Solomon Tower or the Royal Palace, it is one of the most well-known regions of tourism in Hungary. The population of Visegrád counts 1600 people, the number largely increased during Summer by holiday-makers arriving to town.
The town has always been well-known for its favourable location and important strategic role in the Hungarian history. The Sacred crown was kept here for centuries, while the town itself used to be the royal seat of Hungary in the 14th century. The Summit of the Kings of Poland, Bohemia and Hungary in 1335 led by Charles Robert Hungarian king, inspired these countries to launch a successful Central European initiative in 1991: a cooperation that has since become known as the Visegrád Group. This is why so many delegations and diplomatic events choose Visegrád as their destination.
As a popular town for tourism, Visegrád features several three-, and four-star hotels, bed and breakfast accomodation, private houses, restaurants, outdoor and indoor entertainment facilities (Bob-Sledge track, ski track, canopy track), programmes (Knight's Tournaments throughout the year, medieval competitions, International Palace Games) for the ever growing number of visitors arriving to the Danube Bend.
