National Botanical Garden Vácrátót

The 180-year-old romantic landscape-designed garden, also a national monument and nature conservation area, is the richest scientific plant collection of Hungary .

Annual plant exhibitions, intimate trails, rose and geranium collections, and countless tiny wonders of nature await our guests throughout the year.

Danube Bend cruise

The Danube bend is the richest destination in art and history in Hungary. Cruise along the old royal town, enjoy a superb view of the Danube bend, the ruins of forts and castle, heading to the artists' town.


The picturesque town of Szentendre sits at the foot of the Pilis Hill, where you'll experience a Mediterranean atmosphere that few other Hungarian settlements can offer you. No wonder that lots of artists come to find inspiration and work here. Let this unique aura enchant you too. 

Open Air Museum of Ethnography

The collection of the vernacular architecture and interior furnishings, objects and spiritual relics contributes to the conservation of the cultural heritage of rural Hungary.
