Szentendre Travel guide
Szentendre : Michelin's recommendations
Located north of Budapest, Szentendre is a must for visitors staying in the Hungarian capital. This small town owes its popularity to its romantic appeal and leisure activities. Visitors can unwind on the banks of the Danube, go canoeing or sunbathe. In the 17C Szentendre had a large Serbian community that formed an enclave in the town, and in the late 19C the place attracted a great many artists. Orthodox churches and art museums bear witness to these two major periods in the town's history.
