The Danube Bend, the Hungarian Open Air Museum, scenic views, and colourful rooftops – these are some of the things you get when you visit Szentendre.
Many people call Szentendre one of the jewels of the Danube Bend.
From Budapest, it takes less than an hour to get there by public transport. The cobbled streets are full of small cafes, pastry shops, and other places to eat. The Open Air Museum, the waterfront walk, and the Kovács Margaret Museum are unmissable stops.
The first thing many people think of when they think of Gödöllő is the Grassalkovich Castle. Queen Elisabeth, or Sissi, as everyone knows her, was a guest here and in the park surrounding the castle.
It was here that Franz Joseph I and Sissi spent their holidays, which is why Gödöllő is Queen Sissi’s town.
A wedding exhibition is often held here. The town has many parks and a local university, which means that there are many young people. Every year, hundreds of couples choose Gödöllő as the venue for their wedding or honeymoon.
Kőszeg is a real romantic small town. With its Medieval castle, adventurous hiking trails, and charming main square, Kőszeg is an exceptional romantic town.
You can see a beautiful view from the Calvary Church or from the Suleyman Lookout.
The Jurisic Castle survived the Turkish siege of 1532. A boating lake is a 15-minute walk away from the Old Town. The Old Town is worth a visit for its colourful horses, the Heroes’ Gate, and the main square. After the visit, you will understand why Kőszeg is called the pearl of the Alpine valley.
Tapolca has romantic old houses with a Mediterranean atmosphere and a huge mill wheel, writes magyarorszagom.hu. A special feature of the town is the lake cave. Here, you can even take a boat trip with your partner in the middle of a cave, guaranteed to be an exciting and romantic experience.
Because of the Mill Lake, Tapolca is a popular location for wedding photography.
All couples should visit the site of the famous novel by Géza Gárdonyi about the Eger Castle. Eger is known not only for its castle but also for its romantic courtyards and adventurous squares, writes csodasmagyarorszag.hu. The 40-metre-high Minaret and the city’s main square have a very special atmosphere.
In the Archbishop’s Garden, you will also find a brookside, a park, an artificial lake, and a fountain.
The perfect end to an Eger rendezvous is a tasting of ‘Eger bikavér’, the local wine.
