  • Well, it's nice to have a small town like Szentendre. The plan itinerary was Budapest for too long, so there was a day when the train went to Szentendre town. Many years ago, Jolin Tsai had gone to a small town to shoot MV (but the MV called BAA name I have not remember), the impression that he is a full of European wind small town. Go to the Szentendre, sure enough. A small town is not large, but good quiet comfortable, it is worth half a half-day slow tour. Near Main square, there are all kinds of restaurant hand shop, also have a clock, including the rainbow-colored staircase, rainbow Stone River.

  • A small town with a beautiful, picturesque central square attracts children and pigeons. East, just 300 m away slowly, lazily flowing Danube. Feel the tranquility, serenity, walk the streets of the village, drink a hot chocolate with cinnamon in one of the charming cafes. Relax and enjoy the moment.

  • Near Budapest, Szentendre is a jewel box with beautiful "piece" in the main square. Be enchanted by the unique atmosphere any time of year.
