Márianosztra, one of the hidden treasures of the Danube Bend

If you visit the Danube Bend, take a little detour into the beautiful little village with special things to see. A basilica, a calvary and a thought-provoking exhibition are waiting for you.

Prison Museum

After the order was adjourned in the Pauline monastery of Nosztra, founded by King Louis, it operated as a penitentiary for women managed by the Congregation of the Sisters of Mercy. From 1950 onwards, the secret police (known by the abbreviation AVH) had his male political prisoners guarded here, including Tibor Déry, Árpád Göncz, István Bibó and László Mensáros. The museum will present the history of the institute, the most famous prisoners and their daily lives.

Basilica of Our Lady of Hungary

It is worth marveling at the altars of the Baroque church and shrine of the Basilica minor: the Baroque wooden main altar and the six side altars have impressive paintings, and the altar statues of the Fatima chapel surrounded the legendary Mary grace image originally placed here.


In front of the three stone crosses of the road, bordered by lime trees at a distance of 1 km from the Basilica, the three statues carved from cobblestone of the Virgin Mother of Sorrows, apostle St. John and kneeling Saint Mary Magdalene are placed. Here you will find the chapel, built in honor of the Lady of Sorrows.
