Visegrad is a beautiful place little bit north of Budapest (the Hungarian Capital). It was the seat of the Hungarian Kings in the XI-XIV. Cent.
The ruins of the castle are on the top of a hill. It's quite interesting - especially for non-european visitors. The best thing I think is the view from the top, because the river Danube (Duna) takes a great sweep directly by the foot of the hill.
If you visit Budapest and want to make a trip to the nature, Visegrad is a good choice.
