The basilica ahead is the landmark of Esztergom. It is the third largest church in Europe, only smaller than St. Peter's Basilica in Rome and St. Paul's Cathedral in London.
Esztergom was once the capital of Hungary from the 10th to the 13th century. Across the Danube River is Slovak. The Hungarians used to be the ruling class, so even up til now, they still take great pride in themselves and their culture.
Esztergom is the seat of the primate of the Roman Catholic Church in Hungary.
Across from the Danube River is Slovak.
We were about to cross the border and enter Slovakia!
