Did you know?
In 1790, the Hungarian royal crown and coronation badges spent a night in the Danube Museum building when the jewels were transported from Vienna to Buda.
The first steamboat on the Danube was launched in 1830, departing from Vienna to Bratislava and then to Pest, making its first trip in 15 hours.
After the expulsion of the Turks, many German families were settled in the vicinity of Esztergom. Most of them arrived on the Danube on a specific type of ship, the Ulm box type ship, which got its mocking name from a box-like structure built on a ship’s hull. The 1:50 scale model of the box ship can be admired together with many other ship models in the Danube Museum.
