Green holiday in the Danube Bend in Hungary

Who knows the Danube Bend of Hungary? This region, less than 30 km north of Budapest, is very green and picturesque with ancient rhythms of life. The Danube makes a wide bend surrounded by mountains and hills. The landscape is dominated by the great river whose bed is wide, the banks are made of white pebbles and in the center there is an island that is inhabited and cultivated. For beach life you should go on the island as there are the beautiful blazing sun with trees that sink their hair in the water that make it amazing. The Hungarians happily swim in these waters.

Visegrad is the largest town on the right bank of the river overlooked by a castle in a dominant and strategic position on the Danube. A visit to the castle proves to be a bit naive with historical reconstructions and wax figures but the climb is worth it just for the view and in any case the castle is old and big. To refresh yourself just choose one of the many Csarda, the local eateries where you can eat cheaply.

For me the choice to stay fell on a essential but delicious camping, the Jurta Camping. It is located on top of a mountain overlooking the Danube with trees everywhere and many curves to get there. This area is a former game reserve and in winter there is skiing as I saw the tracks. In the summer it is traveled by walkers. The Jurta Camping has essential services with accordingly low pricing. The guys at the front desk could also speak English.
