Esztergom & Visegrad

 This is my last post from when I went away for a weekend during Easter to Slovakia. You can check out the gorgeous Chateau Hotel my mum and I stayed at here and here. It was about a half hour drive from the hotel to Esztergom, which is located in Hungary. It was actually the capital city between the 10th and mid-13th Century. The Basilica is the main attraction here, and the biggest building in Budapest. The altarpiece is the largest painting in the world painted on a single piece of canvas. It was amazing to see. 

Next we drove for about another half hour, to Visegrad, where the Visegrad Castle (or ruins to be exact) is located. It is the remains of the Early Renaissance summer palace of King Matthias Corvinus of Hungary. Here we had lunch and took a walk around the Castle. We definitely got lucky with the weather, as there were very few clouds in the sky, so perfect for a day of sightseeing. 

Guys, my parasitology exam is over for now, I have another exam next week and then another the week after before the actual finals start! Vet school huh? This weekend the weather is supposed to be good, in the 20 degrees, so I am looking forward to spending some time outside. Tomorrow there is a barbecue with a bunch of people, which should be fun, not sure yet what I am taking as I don't eat meat. Maybe some potatoes and possibly fish? Any suggestions? I am very picky when it comes to cooked vegetables. What is the weather like where you are? Hope you have a great weekend anyhow!
