Cruising in Danube By Visegrad, Hungary

It was a relaxing cruise we had last summer in Danube River particularly in Visegrád. It is a historical town in Pest County, Hungary.

I am also glad to announce that this site is joining for the first time the memes below. I hope to join every week when time permits. I just have a lot of travel images to share for this memes.

It was a fantastic countryside trip we had last August 2011.

A small boat cruising Danube River, the second longest river in Europe.

The name Visegrád (Vyšehrad) is of Slavic origin meaning "the upper castle" or "the upper settlement/town/fortification". Visegrád was first mentioned in 1009 as a county town and the chief town of an archdeaconry. After the destructive Mongol invasion of Europe in 1242, the town was rebuilt in a slightly different location to the south. King Charles I of Hungary made Visegrád, his hometown, the royal seat of Hungary in 1325.

This was taken while we were near the castle in Visegrad which is located on top of the hill. That river is called Danube.
