Writing these posts is a great way of attaching my memories of the correct places.
On Monday morning we awoke in Esztergom having sailed there over night. Still in Hungary, Esztergom was a lovely small city. The weather was very warm and sunny, almost too sunny for photographs and the sun was not always in the right place. Still I have found more than enough of my many photographs that I think are worth sharing.
Things I saw along the way as we walked from the ship.
The painting over the main altar. According to Wikipedia this painting of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary by Girolamo Michelangelo Grigoletti is the largest painting in the world painted on a single piece of canvas.
I had to take a picture of the St Joseph altar as my parish church is St Joseph’s They also had a statue of St Elizabeth of Hungary, my confirmation saint. and how could I leave out this magnificent icon of the first king – St Stephen. After this we decided to go up the tower to get a view over the city – many, many steps. Part way up looking back at the river.Then up at the top. A lovely clear day.The city nestling in the hills.
