Szentendre is a riverside town in Pest county, Hungary, on a countryside, near the capital city Budapest. It is known for its museums galleries, and artists. With a short travelling you can reach the beautiful small city.
Due to its historic architecture and easy rail and river access, it has become a popular village destination for tourists staying in Budapest, or travelling around in Hungary. There are many facilities, including souvenir shops and restaurants, catering to these visitors.
Life revitalized here multiple times during the centuries but the old walls remained, some of them are still standing on 2000-year-old foundations. Many artists painted the unique magic of the cheerful, sparkling colours, the evocative cobblestone streets, the fine-lined baroque steeples and the tiny downtown houses leaning against one another. But there is no need to be a painter in order to see the marks of Romans on the bank of the river or to imagine the warriors’ march to the Castle of Visegrád.
Szentendre (St. Andrew), the artist village, was named after its mediaeval patron saint. It is a typical Mediterranean village, situated on the slope of a hill in the beautyful nature, its small and narrow streets are running down to the river Danube. There are small shops, artists, cafés, restaurants and pubs. Your guide will take you around and tell you exciting stories about the history of Hungary. Optionally we can visit the Margaret Kovács Museum with the handcrafts of the Hungarian ceramical artist or the famous Confectionary Museum where you can see also the building of the House of Parliament made of marzipan.
