Special places in Esztergom
Bridge of Mária-Valéria
The Mária-Valéria Bridge is located between Esztergom and the Slovak Sturovo on the other side of the Danube. Its history began in 1893, when an open tender for the construction of a Danube bridge in Esztergom was announced. Two years later, the bridge named after Ferenc József’s daughter, Maria Valeria, was handed over ceremonially.
In the evening of July 1919, an explosion on the ledge led to a part of the bridge falling into the water. It was not until years later, in 1927, that traffic could restart. II. he survived World War II without serious injury, but unfortunately in 1944 the retreating German troops did not spare. Esztergom’s pride was blown up, and until the 1990s neither Hungary nor Czechoslovakia wanted to restore it. However, in 1993, the prime ministers of both parties applied for support, so a few years later an agreement to rebuild the bridge was signed. As a result, the new Mary-Valeria bridge was opened on October 11, 2001.
