"Szentendre - Quaint town on Danube Bend" Szentendre by Mikebb

Szentendre Travel Guide: 221 reviews and 604 photos

This small town of over 20,000 people is located on the Danube 19km north of Budapest and is an easy and interesting day trip. Train is the easiest way to get there and regularly departs fromBatthyany ter metro station taking 40 minutes. We did not take the train as we were conned into a pretense free tour which turned out taking us to a diamond factory. Eventually we reached the town and spent an enjoyable 3 or 4 hours looking at the local sights, craft shops , local artists and finally having lunch before catching the old train back to Budapest.

There are many artists , craftsmen and potters who have works on display throughout the hilly and winding streets

The local church high on the hill with the primary school next door.

      Hi Don, Most likely my fist page on VT, our first trip to Europe since I retired ( April 2002 retired), I have since learnt Reviews are of more interest than travelogues.

    And there were (and still are, as far as I know) many Serbs in Sent Andre!

    Hi Mike, Welcome back ! Remember me ? I once inquired after your 'freebie' trip to Szentendre ? Well, looks like I'll be back in Budapest this October, with access to the same trip offer to Sze. So whats the catch ? Would you say Yay or Nay ?
