Discover ‘The Pearl of the Danube’ This Eid!

The luxurious Corinthia Hotel Budapest invites GCC travellers to visit Budapest, one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, this Eid for an unforgettable stay exploring Hungary’s rich history, culture and stunning natural landscape.

Budapest, the Pearl of the Danube, is well known for its healing thermal water springs, historic spas and stunning architecture. The city boasts an extensive repertoire of World Heritage Sites such as the Buda Castle Quarter, Andrassy Avenue and of course the banks of the Danube.

The history of the Danube is intricately interwoven with that of Budapest and Hungary. True understanding of the country’s culture and history isn’t complete without exploring the historic Danube Bend. Corinthia Hotel Budapest has designed a special package allowing guests to visit the three most beautiful cities in the Danube Bend: Esztergom, Visegrad and Szentendre.

The full day tour along the “Blue Danube” leaves Budapest and stops first at Visegrád where guests can marvel at the 750 year-old stones of the formal Royal Residence, learn about life in the middle ages and enjoy the fascinating panorama on the Danube valley. Next stop is Esztergom, the Northern gate of Budapest where guests can visit the largest cathedral in Hungary – the burial place of famous cardinals of Hungary, including Primate József Mindszenty.

On the way back, guests will stop off in the artist’s village of Szentendre, a small baroque city at the gate of the Danube Bend. Situated at the meeting place of the river Danube and the Pilis Mountains, in a beautiful natural environment, it is a stunning place to visit. Visitors can stroll through the baroque settlement, built on medieval ruins and explore the narrow streets en route to the panorama point for fabulous views of the Danube.

‘Danube Bend Tour’ Package:

The package starts from €529 (excluding VAT & City Tax) for a minimum stay of three nights and includes accommodation for two in a Superior room and a delicious buffet breakfast. The full day Danube Bend tour to Esztergom, Visegrad and Szentendre includes a boat tour back to Budapest.

The package is valid until 30 September 2014 and is subject to availability and blackout dates may apply.
