The historic Visegrád is set in surpassingly scenery country, where verdant hills come down almost to the water's edge. The strategic importance of this potential bottleneck at a hairpin bend in the river has been evident at least since the 4th century, when the Romans built a fort here.
Most of what remains is left to your imagination, though to give a better idea of the whole palace, some areas have been reconstructed. The terraced palace is dug in, up and down the hillside, part of the landscape.
