Welcome to Vác

Vác

Known as the 'City of Churches', Vác is a pretty Baroque town on the east bank of the Danube Bend. The cultural and commercial centre of the left side of the river, Vác is a popular tourist destination in Hungary, especially as a day trip from Budapest. The stunning cathedral, found by the first Hungarian King, St Stephen , is the most popular attraction in Vác, though there are many other sites to visit. A more macabre attraction is the Memento Mori Crypt, which houses naturally mummified corpses and is listed as a World Heritage Site.


Information & Facts

Language
Hungarian (Magyar) is the official language, but German is widely spoken, especially in the areas close to the Austrian border. English is spoken in tourist areas and most hotels.
Money

Even though Hungary is part of the EU it does not use the Euro; the official currency is the Hungarian Forint (HUF). Travellers cheques are not widely favoured. Credit cards most accepted in the country are AMEX, Diners Club, EnRoute, Euro/Mastercard, JCB and Visa, and these can be used to withdraw cash from banks and ATMs and to pay bills in hotels, restaurants and most shops. Banks usually open between 8am and 4pm on weekdays and some are open on Saturdays. ATMs and currency exchange machines are available in towns and cities throughout the country. It is advisable to retain exchange receipts for proof of legal currency exchange.
