The Treasures of the Baroque Town of Vác
Vác is a little gem, a small baroque town just north of Budapest (half an hour by train). It is stunningly situated along the river Danube and has many historic houses, palaces and churches. In addition, Vácis home to two very special treasures: a unique collection of mummies from the 1700s and a collection of paintings by Gyula Hincz, the ‘Picasso of Hungary’. What is more: as Vác hasn’t yet been generally discovered by foreign tourists,strolling the town offers visitors an authentic feel for life in an old and elegant Hungarian town.
