Working and living in the region
In northern Hungary, on the banks of the Danube, lies the former capital of Hungary, Esztergom. The town can look back on a history spanning more than 1000 years. Following the Great Slav Rising of 983, Emperor Otto III established the archbishopric of Gran to promote the conversion of the country to Christianity. It was the ecclesiastical centre of the Kingdom of Hungary and, until the 18th century, consisted largely of present-day Slovakia. Today Esztergom is a popular travel destination with many historical buildings, including the Castle Hill Basilica, the symbol of the town and the tallest building in the country, as well as St. Stephen’s Coronation Statue.
In Esztergom, they know how to party. The city puts on the annual lantern show and carnival as well as numerous music festivals and a bridge festival, which is organised and hosted jointly with their neighbours on the Slovakian side of the river.
Esztergom is home to one university, seven secondary schools, and seven primary schools. The skyline is dominated by the largest classical basilica in Hungary, the Primatial Basilica of the Blessed Virgin Mary Assumed Into Heaven and St. Adalbert (built between 1822 and 1856 by József Hild). This, the largest Catholic church in Hungary, and its adjoining Renaissance chapel are visible from afar, perched high on Castle Hill.
