Can you hear the footsteps of King Matthias?

Royal Palace

Above the gothic cloister, walking on the typically renaissance loggia, people can easily have the feeling that behind them are walking Beatrice of Aragon and King Matthias hand in hand. However, we can be sure that we very much hear the footsteps of the 21st century as the Royal Palace is a popular sight in Visegrád.

“Discover the Hungarian Renaissance!”

Those who have admired the Italian master, Giovanni Dalmata’s masterpiece the Fountain of Hercules, or took a picture with their significant other on the famous renaissance loggia, or even their favourite wedding-picture is made in the palace-garden, next to the Fountain, they will surely recommend to their friends a visit to the palace.

The golden age of Hungary is all around. The exploring of the palace in itself contains many experiences for those who are interested in history, but beside the permanent exhibitions and projections, taking a tour-guide, you can even easily spend a full half-day between the walls of the nearly 700-year-old complex.
