This episode of the Danube Bend series takes you to one of the oldest towns of Hungary, to the baroque beauty of Vac. Sat across the well-known towns of Szentendre and Esztergom, Vac is often overlooked by visitors and locals alike. This 45 minute long virtual walking tour aims to change that! This riverside city has attractions worth way more than an hour, but we'll squeeze in as much as possible, so once you plan your in-person tour to Hungary, you can keep this town on your short list of sites worth a visit! During this tour, we focus our attention at the triangular-shaped main square, framed by baroque style buildings, providing a quite unique tone to Vac, which lived it's heydays during the late 1700s. Spoiler alert! Besides the main square, the tour passes by the so-called White church, and the baroque national landmark Vac cathedral before concluding by the recently renovated castle church, aka the church of friars.
Working as a tourist guide was not my first career choice, but it seems to be the right choice. For a while I followed a sort-of standard path: getting my bachelor, and my masters degree and started to work for a multinational company. Meanwhile my interest towards my hometown kept growing to the point that my friends convinced me to return to school and get my licence to become a tourist guide. As the saying goes: the rest is history. I have been in the business since 2011 and regardless of all the hardship, difficulties, uncertainty I still have passion for my profession. Which I hope will be obvious for you once you take a tour with me in Budapest, or in the Hungarian countryside. By joining a tour with me you will get two in one: a professional, licenced guide and an amateur urban photography enthusiast. Both are very handy when it comes to live, virtual tours. You can expect great angles, excellent postcard opportunities and a dry sense of humour during my tours as I strongly believe in entertaining while educating. Kind regards
