  • A very large and beautiful basilica, currently undergoing renovations, you can tour it free of charge, beautiful paintings from the inside. Great view of the Danube from the outside and a view of Slovenia opposite. Large parking in front of the basilica. There aren't many people around so you can leisurely stroll there.
  • This place is HUGE! They were not kidding when they said this is the biggest Basilica in the country. Sadly when I was here, it was undergoing sine renovation, but I saw enough to impress me. And then outside, at the back is the beautiful view of the Danube river, with Slovakia in the background. Plus not a lot of people, so, win-win.
