It is the central square of the Szentendre (St. Andrew), which used to be the foreign merchants' enclave. It is charming, it is quaint, it is close to Budapest. Go by train, and return by ship. Other way round the ship trip takes twice as long, as you will be fighting the mighty Danube.

It is a real shame that one of Hungary's prettiest towns, perhaps the prettiest of all, is so poorly administered by local authorities. Main square and main streets very uncomfortable due to mud, ice, snow. Does anyone take care of the village? Shop opening times also not the ones one would expect from a major tourist destination. At night, what... More

Szentendre is a little picturesque town close to Budapest. Suburban railways (HEV) from Buda side of Margit bridge is the best, cheapest and easiest way to get there. It is like an open air museum with old houses, narrow streets, cafes, restaurants and churches. It is an important place in Serbian history too, as many Serbs settled there at the... More

Despite the cold, this village square is nice place to spend the afternoon or evening. It offers a quaint and small village type feeling. Buy yourself a forralt bor and walk up and down the square and by the river. Then when you get very cold, go into the Mazipan cafe, next the museum and have a coffee, tea or... More

It is utterly inusual, very eclectic town, greatly influenced by different artists and significant cultural activists. Amazingly beautiful, incredible, with unique atmosphere and lovely little places and dozen of museums to see around the main square and pretty much around each corner. My advise to spend at least couple of days in the town just to see all it has... More

Visited this town as part of a Viking river cruise along the Danube. If you like narrow, picturesque cobblestone streets lined with vendors selling all kinds of souvenirs as well as fine handicrafts. This is your kind of place. Bus loads of day trippers. Numerous restaurants and cafes.

Cobbled streets, old homes, the river and the churches pretty much sum Szentendre up that said it is a nice little town to spend a few hours. Take the 5 train from the Bathyany ter metro station (45 minutes) which will cost 1320 Ft pp return. The walk into town and the tourist information office from the train station is... More
