Home Up Prague Cesky Krumlov & Telc Vienna Budapest Eger Stary Smokovec Auschwitz Krakow


After three large cities in quick succession, we were starting to get a little citied out.  As a result, it was good that the next few days of the holiday took us to smaller towns in the Hungarian and Slovakian countryside.

After leaving Budapest, we first paid a quick visit to Szentendre, a small touristy town on the bank of the Danube, mainly full of souvenir shops.

We then headed for the town of Eger in Northern Hungary, famous for it's castle and thermal baths.  We spent more of our time in the castle, visiting a slightly gruesome dungeon and a splendid small art gallery with a highly enthusiastic (but sadly non English speaking) curator.


Our hotel that night had it's own wine cellars and museum!
