Winter sports; Among nature; Near water
<p>Zebegény is situated between Visegrád and Esztergom, in the middle of the Danube Belt. Its magic casts a spell over everyone who visits it. This is due partly to the beautiful layout of the tiny village, but its cultural traditions and approachability are also key factors in its charm.
Designed by the famous Renaissance man Károly Kós, the Roman Catholic Church in the village is well worth seeing. It is also a unique example of 20th century Hungarian church construction. The Maritime Museum is also quite interesting.
Here each season of the year provides a different atmosphere. In the warmer seasons there is the opportunity for water sports, angling, horseback excursions, tennis, football, volleyball, etc. In winter ski aficionados will find a slope with ski-lift in Zebegény–Újvölgy. From Zebegény there are cruises to Esztergom and Visegrád every day.
Zebegény is an ideal place from where you can take excursions to the capital of Budapest (60km) or Esztergom (25km), which used to be the capital of the country during the reign of Arpad. Its famous dome-topped cathedral as well as neighboring Visegrad (10km), which is one of the oldest towns in Hungary, are a must see. In Visegrad you will find the ruins of the renaissance Royal Palace. On top of the mountain above the palace there is a spectacular medieval fortress and a toboggan run. Visit Szentendre (30km) where the local gallery and the Margit Kovács Museum are worth seeing.</p>
