    We spent a week in Budapest before joining a tour. We located a private tour guide and had two wonderful trips, one to Eger and then to the Danube Bend. Both of our guides, Peter and Gebrielle, had an excellent command of English and a thorough knowledge of the history of the county.

    Eger is one of the wine producing regions. We went to several wine caves, sampled several local wines and really enjoyed that part of the tour. We were then taken to the fortress, where there is a monument to the women of Eger. In 1551, they defended against an attack by the Turks by pouring hot oil and gulyash on the invaders. They did not return for nearly 50 years. I may have the dates wrong, but the activity is historically correct The town was beautiful and the peole were very gracious.

    On the Danube bend, we saw the cities of Szentendre (St. Andrew), Estergom and Visegrad.
    Szentendre was especially beautiful and we plan to stay overnight on the next trip to Eastern Europe.

    The rest of our trip was to Vienna, Salzburg and Prague. We'll remember Budapest most fondly, because of our guides and the people of the region. And don't miss the Central Market and Nostlgia Restaurant in Budapest .

    Enjoy!

    Szentendre Main Square

    Szentendre is a small picture-esque town easily seen from Budapest in a morning or afternoon. It is a famous Hungarian artist hang out. See my Szentendre page for more details.

    by the banks of Szentendre

    The Danube flows gently all the way to this picturesque place in Szentendre, a gypsy village I was so fond of.
