==== ESZTERGOM – ATTRACTION
The main attraction of Esztergom is the magnificent cathedral. This vast building dominates the whole town and, located on a hill, can be seen from miles away. The sheer size of it dwarfs every other structure in the surroundings. Thanks to the windows in the immense dome the interior is surprisingly light and airy.
