Szentendre – A day trip from Budapest

 

Szentendre is just outside of Budapest. 20 km north of Budapest on Danube Bend. 

The place of cobblestone street, churches, museums and art galleries. Just need to catch HÈV train from Margit Hid. It takes 40 min and around £5 return ticket.

When I’ve got there I just walked into the centre. The village centres around a small triangular square where you can get a carriage ride but walking is just easy! The streets are full with art shops, little museums and plenty open air restaurants and cafe to tempt you. I was lucky, the sun was out on the day I visited this beautiful place. Everyone was just walking around the wee streets, sitting outside for a coffee or having some drinks and food. It was really busy but still seemed peaceful. When you are walking around you can not miss to have an ice cream from one of the ice cream shops that offers handmade ice cream. That’s the must!

After that take a walk to see the Danube. Sit down and enjoy! I was just sitting on the rocks, eating my ice cream and was just watching the peaceful Danube. You could go for a boat trip, a coach trip an any trip but I would suggest to stop. Stop for a moment, sit down and enjoy the atmosphere and the view. You are not getting this everywhere. You are not really getting this anywhere else really!
