The Danube Bend Series : Cycling & Walking around Zebegeny
This episode of the Danube Bend series takes you to the largely overlooked villages of Zebegeny and Nagymaros. Unlike the right bank of the so-called Danube bend, the left bank is hiding in the shadows of Esztergom, Visegrad and Szentendre.
This time, we meet at a lookout point towering above the village of Zebegeny offering a majestic panoramic view to the river Danube. During the first part of this 60 minutes long virtual experience we check out the most picturesque streets and houses of Zebegeny, learning why this village became known as a preferred summer vacation resort during the early 1900s for many high class Hungarians.
During the second part of the tour we'll start to burn calories as Adam will hop on his bicycle to cover the distance between Zebegeny and Nagymaros. With the help of Adam we'll have the chance to experience one of the most visually appealing parts of the bicycle road running along the Hungarian section of the river Danube. Expect dramatic landscapes as we follow the river turning from West to South and then to North before we reach our final destination: Nagymaros. We will conclude this tour with excellent views overlooking the fortifications of Visegrad located just across the river from Nagymaros.
