The Veresegyház Bear Farm (Veresegyházi Medveotthon) established in an area of five and a half hectares is the only bear sanctuary in Central Europe. In the past years wolves, raccoons, coatis and 2 reindeers arrived besides the bears. Besides this, the birds of the park must be mentioned, but nearby a horse arena and a pony farm can be found as well, where cattle and cakiel sheep/Racka sheep (racka juh) are also kept. Children can find a playground, a small locomotive, sightseeing elevator in the area of the park and maybe most importantly, the visitors themselves can feed always hungry bears from a wooden spoon, with honey.

The Veresegyház Thermal Bath (Veresegyházi Termálfürdő) is really simple, cozy, close to nature and rustic. It has an outdoor thermal pool, children’s pool, sauna and playground. The thermal water of the bath, open all year round, is perfectly good for treating degenerative diseases of the joints, chronic and half acute joint inflammations, post treatment of orthopedic surgeries and surgeries after accidents.
Besides the Bear Park and the Thermal Bath the region offers several sights and program opportunities.

Besides the race you can kart in the Hungaroring, participate in track tours, amusement drives, amusement taxi, car and bike open days, driving techniques training or bike and off-road trainings.
Visegrád is only 56 km away from Veresegyház, in a wonderful environment, where the Visegrádi mountains and the river Danube meet. Due to its exceptional natural features, its incredible flora and fauna it is a very popular place for trips.
The highest point of the Visegrádi-mountains (Visegrádi-hegység) is Dobogókő. On Dobogókő the air is crystal clear and amazing view awaits the visitors; you can ski, sleigh in the winter on the steep courses with ski lifts, and on the hiking trails starting from the settlement you can discover the environment with its especially diverse terrain. For example you can visit the famous Rám-ravine (Rám-szakadék) where you can defeat a 112 m of difference in height between the two end points of the one kilometer long ravine; the rock walls of the ravine sometimes reach the height of 35 meters. You can discover the valleys, caves, lakes of the mountains or simply rest in the nice air, enjoy the beautiful panorama, gaze at the sight of nature, listen to the birds chirping, in the company of refreshing lemonade in the summer and in the company of a cup of hot tea or mulled wine in the winter.
Besides its natural values Visegrád also has an abundance of architectural masterpieces and entertainment opportunities as well. The Citadel (Fellegvár) which is also a location for several interesting exhibitions is among the exceptional spectacles of the town. Under the castle you can visit the Royal Palace (Királyi Palota) with rooms with authentic furniture, the suite of a prince, a working medieval kitchen and a wonderful renaissance garden. It is worth visiting the Tower of Salamon (Salamon-torony), the Round Bastion (Kerekbástya) the Trout Lakes (Pisztrángos Tavak), and the Miklós Bertényi Botanical Garden (Bertényi Miklós Füvészkert) that shows a different face each season. In the Moonshine Pálinka Museum (Zugfőzde Pálinkamúzeum) you can learn about the mastery of pálinka brewing, its past and present, you can hear exciting stories about the period when pálinka brewing was forbidden, you can make your own labels and even get to taste pálinka when visiting the exhibition, you can also buy some of it.
If you like to be outdoors, like doing sports and are not afraid of challenges, then the Visegrád Bobsled Course (Visegrádi Bobpálya), Canopy Fun Extreme Park, Gokart and Adventure Park (Visegrád Gokart és Kalandpark), the Nagyvillám Ski Resort (Nagyvillám Sípálya; in the winter the necessary amount of snow is provided with snow cannons, there is a ski lift on the course, training and renting equipment is provided, and grass skiing can be done from spring until fall) is for you, but you can participate for example in forest cycling group tours as well.
Esztergom is in the north, 23 km from Visegrád, in the Danube bend; on the other side of the river Danube it is already Slovakia. One end of the bridge Mária Valéria arching the river is Esztergom, the other end is Sturovo, so there is a dricet link between the neighboring towns of the two countries.
Its historic past, famous monuments, treasures of the museum, cultural traditions, the streets of the old town providing an ambience of antiquity and the significant cultural events of the town make it an internationally liked travel destination.
The picturesque town is the center of the Roman Catholic church in Hungary. The Esztergom Basilica (Esztergomi Bazilika) is one of the largest basilicas of Europe, and at the same time one of the tallest buildings of the country as well. On its upper floor you can fund the Main Basilica Treasury (Főszékesegyházi Kincstár) which has an exceptional collection, even in worldwide comparison. The building, which is an amazing sight, is within the Castle of Esztergom (Esztergomi Vár).
The Castle Theatre (Várszínház) operates in the castle (compelling performances from the middle of June until the middle of August), the Castle Museum (Vármúzeum; established in what was long ago the Royal Palace) and the Panopticon (Panoptikum), that, together with the cobblestoned streets surrounding them, make up the castle hill.
The Palace of the Primate (Prímási Palota) is a definitive building of Esztergom. The palace which is beautiful on the outside and on the inside alike was built to be the residence of the archbishop of Esztergom, today it is the location of the Christian Museum (Keresztény Múzeum), the Archbishop Simor Library (Érseki Simor Könyvtár) and the Primate Archives (Prímási Levéltár).
The GEODA – Interactive Mineral and Paleontology Exhibition (Interaktív Ásvány- és Őslénykiállítás) is such a special exhibition where wandering about the 500 m2 place is done with the active cooperation of the participants. A screening room, a further 6 showrooms, jewelry making, “gold washing” and researching paleontological remains await You.
Aquasziget Spa (Aquasziget Élményfürdő) is one of the most fitting places in the town for recreation if you like water, sauna and comforting care. Adventure pools, children’s pools, hot tubs, slides, several types of saunas and massages help recreation in the complex consisting of a indoors spa, the outdoors beach and sauna world.
Esztergom can also be proud in the field of Hungarian and international cuisine as well; you can eat heavenly meals and drink tasty wines in its restaurants.
The capital of Hungary, Budapest, is only 20 km from Veresegyház.
Budapest is the 9th most populated city of the European Union, divided by the river Danube into two parts, Buda and Pest. The islands of the river within the administrative borders of the city are Csepel island, Margit island, Óbudai island and Szentendrei island. The capital is the 3rd most popular travel destination in the Eastern-Central European region, approximately 3.2 million foreign visitors arrived here in 2015. It is hard to list how many sights, monuments, wonderful buildings and establishments, entertainment and recreation opportunities it has, so we will only mention a couple of them.
The Parliament, which is among the most beautiful parliament buildings in the world, is in the city center of Budapest. The building is a priceless historical treasure, the pride of the Hungarian nation, the home of legislation and the place where the Holy Crown is kept. Visitors can visit the building with the help of guided tours. It is directly on the bank of the river Danube, almost directly across it on the Buda side is the Buda Castle (Budai Vár) and the Fisherman’s Bastion (Halászbástya), to which you can get using the Széchenyi Chain Bridge (Lánchíd) the fastest. The Chain Bridge (Lánchíd) is the symbol of the capital, the oldest and most well known bridge over the Danube to connect Buda and Pest. The Buda Castle District (Budai Várnegyed) is made up of three main parts, the Budavár Palace, Square Szent György, and the historic residential quarter. You can get to the Budavár Palace (Budavári Palota) using a special shuttle (sikló), which is a defining element of the Danube bank vista and provides a really special experience. Its lower station is at the Buda bridgehead of the Széchenyi Chain Bridge, near the Danube bank mouth of the Alagút, and the upper one is between the Budavár Palace and the Sándor-palace (Sándor-palota). The Hungarian National Gallery (Magyar Nemzeti Galéria), the National Széchenyi Library (Országos Széchenyi Könyvtár) and the Budapest Historical Museum (Budapesti Történeti Múzeum) were established in the Gothic style royal palace, near it the Matthias Church (Mátyás-templom) and the Fisherman’s Bastion rise above, from where we can watch the amazing Budapest.
Going further on the Buda side, to the South you can see the 235m high Gellért Hill (Gellért-hegy) with the Citadel (Citadella) and the Statue of Liberty (Szabadság-szobor) on its top. The panorama is fantastic in the night and during the day alike, it is simply indescribable. If you would like to connect feasting your eyes on the vista before you with teasing your taste buds, then the Citadella Panoráma Restaurant or the Búsuló Juhász Restaurant is the perfect choice.
We have good news for those who love heights, the János Hill (János-hegy), which is also in the area of Budapest, is 527m above sea level, and the Elizabeth Lookout Tower (Erzsébet kilátó) is on its top. You can get to the overlook with the help of chairlift, child train, but you can get there with a half an hour walk from the Normafa as well. The chairlift is an elevator with a funicular (suspension railway), travelling with which from the capital the panorama keeps renewing itself. The children’s train is a traffic spectacle on which children are on duty and go from the Széchenyi-mountain to Hűvösvölgy. Such spectacles are along its tracks like the Bátori cave (Bátori-barlang), the Budakeszi Wildlife Park (Budakeszi Vadaspark), or the Csillebérc Adventure Park (Csillebérci Kalandpálya). Normafa is a popular hiking and skiing destination, part of the Buda Environmental Protection Region. The clearing offers a free view of the city and the inner Buda mountain range.
There are several monuments, museums, churches and squares in Budapest worth visiting if you wish to learn about the history of the city and of the Hungarian nation. Besides the Hungarian National Gallery, the Budapest Historical Museum and the Matthias Church which were mentioned above the Basilica of Szent István (Szent István Bazilika), the Hungarian National Museum (Magyar Nemzeti Múzeum), the Museum of Applied Arts (Iparművészeti Múzeum), the Museum of Transportation (Közlekedési Múzeum), the Hungarian Railway History Park (Magyar Vasúttörténeti Park), the House of Terror (Terror Háza), the Gresham Palace (Gresham-palota) or the Dohány street synagogue (Dohány utcai zsinagóga) can be good choices.
The Városliget is home to, among others, the Hungarian Museum of Folklore (Magyar Néprajzi Múzeum) built next to the Heroes’s Square (Hősök tere), the Vajdahunyad Castle (Vajdahunyad vára), the Hungarian Museum of Agriculture (Magyar Mezőgazdasági Múzeum), the Városliget boating lake, the Széchenyi Thermal Bath and Swimming Pool (Széchenyi Gyógyfürdő és Uszoda), the Budapest Zoo & Botanical Garden (Fővárosi Állat- és Növénykert) and the Capital Circus of Budapest (Fővárosi Nagycirkusz). The Városliget is connected to the inner city by Andrássy street. Andrássy street (Andrássy út) is a boulevard more than 2 km long, the Millennium Underground Railway goes under it, and on its two sides such spectacles can be found like the Hungarian State Opera (Magyar Állami Operaház), the Operetta Theatre (Operettszínház), the House of Terror (Terror Háza), the Miniversum or Liszt Ferenc square, Jókai square, and the “Pest Broadway” (Nagymező street) as part of the popular theatre and entertainment quarter (theatres, restaurants, entertainment venues). Miniversum is a gigantic model table of 300 square meters in constant movement, rich in detail, on which the landscape of Hungary, Austria and Germany come alive in 1:87 reduction size. You can see the spectacles of several towns on the table, and you can see the everyday life of the locals as well: around the buildings, in the parks, at the lakes, and in the mountains swimming people, couples walking together, old ladies walking dogs, fishermen, boatmen, farmers, construction workers, wounded people, policemen, firemen, young kids skating in half-pipes can be seen, basically everything you can imagine in a town or around it.
If you like the world of plants and animals then, besides visiting the Budapest Zoo & Botanical Garden it is worth to pay a visit to the indoors Tropicarium as well, where thousands of land and water animals can be seen up close. The thematic rooms provide an overall image of the wildlife of the rainforests, the oceans and Hungary as well.
If you wish to be closer to nature, go out to the Népliget, to the Margit island, the Óbudai island or have a trip to the Szentendrei island. The Margit island or Margaret island (Margitsziget) is one of the most popular place, not only for tourists but for Budapest residents as well. Among others huge parks, clearings, music fountains, restaurants, cafés, entertainment venues, hotels, outdoors theatre, baths (Palatinus Beach, Hajós Alfréd Swimmingpool) can be found on the island. The island can be jogged around on a constructed running course, but you can ride a bicycle, walk, do outdoors sports or simply lie in the grass. No cars can enter the island so the air is perfectly clear, Margit island is a paradise in all aspects in the middle of the bustling city.
Budapest is also rich in thermal and beach baths, among its thermal baths (open all year round) are the Dagály, the Dandár, the Gellért, the Király, the Lukács, the Rudas, the Paskál and the Széchenyi thermal bath, and among its beach baths are (seasonally open) the Csillaghegyi, the Palatinus, the Pünkösdfürdői and the Római beach bath.

It is characteristic of Budapest that if it is about gastronomy, shopping, festivals, concerts, ruin pubs, or other entertainment options (English language escape games, shooting, spelunking, adventure courses) then the inventory of the city seems endless. Long line of excellent restaurants awaits you with delicious meals with indoors rooms and open terraces, for example in Ráday street, Liszt Ferenc square, Gozsdu Courtyard (Gozsdu udvar). For shopping the best choice is Westend City Center, the Árkád, the Allee or the Aréna Pláza, but you can find several malls in the inner city and the famous Váci street (Váci utca) and Vörösmarty square must also be mentioned. The bustling city does not go silent even at night, the inner city offers an abundance of ruin pubs, restaurants, cafés, discos, and other entertainment venues (like bowling, billiard, darts, table soccer, movie, dance nights, shows). Deák square and the Gozsdu yard can be considered the center of nightlife (the party district) but when it comes to concerts, Budapest Park wins (seasonally). The festivals are also colorful, like the city itself, starting from the gastronomical, beer, wine, pálinka, light and classical music events up to the Sziget Festival, known and liked worldwide.
