Mohacs Cruises, Hungary
SHORE EXCURSIONS View all excursions
Mohacs might look like a tiny, unassuming town, but this place has a turbulent past. Today, you’ll learn all about the Battle of Mohacs on a walking tour. This place was at the heart of the Hungarian-Ottoman tug of war in the 16th century, due to its position near Hungary’s southern border. You’ll head straight for the main square, where you can gaze up at Votive Memorial Church. The domed Roman Catholic church commemorates the Battle of Mohacs, when the Hungarian army were defeated by the invading Turks in 1526. In the same square, you’ll also see the Statue of the Three Nationalities, which represents the coming together of the town’s various different ethnic groups.
