esztergom

town, Komarom-Esztergom megye (county), northwestern Hungary. It is a river port on the Danube River (which at that point forms the frontier with Slovakia) and lies 25 miles (40 km) northwest of Budapest. The various forms of its name all refer to its importance as a grain market. It is at the western end of the valley cut by the Danube between the Pilis and Borzsony hills, which divides the Little Alfold (Little Hungarian Plain) from the Great Alfold (Great Hungarian Plain).
