Szentendre is a small picturesque town 20 km north of Budapest. It is very easy to visit on a daytrip from Budapest and that's what I did.
In Szentendre you will see houses in many different colours built in Baroque and Rococo style, and many church towers as there are many Catholic and Orthodox churches in the town. It is pleasant to walk around the narrow streets and now and then visit one of the many souvenir shops, cafes and restaurants, churches, art galleries and museums.

Many of the churches in Szentendre are Serbian Orthodox. That?s because many Serbs came to Hungary and Szentendre after the Ottomans had conquered the Balkans.

    I visited there several years ago, in connection with a trip to Budapest. It's such a picturesque little town, I liked it a lot!

    I've never been to Szentendre, but I see from the map that it's not far from Dunakeszi, where an elderly aunt of mine used to live (my father's oldest sister).

    Interesting page on this little town. Potteries are often tempting but sooo heavy! Marzipan museum! How amazing!

    Another enjoyable page, Malena! They charge you money to take pictures of churches in Szentendre? If so, I think I would skip the churches -- and just enjoy some langos and a big glass of Drecher beer. Cheers, Bill
