Nagymaros (from 1996) is a small town on the left bank of the Danube River, opposite the beautiful Visegrád in the gate of the Duna-Ipoly National Park 50 km from Budapest. The town has about 5,000 inhabitants. Nagymaros is located in Pest County.
Nagymaros was a city in the Middle Ages, when Visegrád was one of the capitals of Hungary (14-15th century). In the time of the Turkish wars (1525-1699) and the Prince Rákóczi's War of Independence (1703-1711), Nagymaros lost its population. The Habsburgs colonized Nagymaros with Germans from Mainz and environs. More of them had been deported to Germany after the WW II.
In Nagymaros: Gothic-Baroque Roman Catholic Church, Kittenberger Collection, and beautiful view from the Hegyes-teto (means Pointed Peak) to the Danube Bend.
