I grew up in Vac and live here since then. I know the city by hearth. All the nice spots, restaurants, cafés and places to visit.

Vác is the most famous city of Hungary when it comes to baroque architecture and unique monuments such as the triumphal arch, the only of it's kind in Hungary.

The prison played a crucial part of the history of the 20th century. It has been "home" for well-known politicians, poets and patriots.

The beautiful Danube promenade offers a stunning view from the city. A romantic vibe for everyone seeking it.

Vac is also the symbol of millennial tolerance among it's citizens, which shaped the people and let them prosper.
