Szentendre Tours

599 Reviews
Szentendre
Set on the Danube River, the postcard-perfect town of Szentendre (St. Andrew) was settled by Serbs and Greeks in the 16th and 17th centuries, and baroque buildings still dominate its cobblestone streets. The little town, often called the Artist’s Village, has been home to an artists’ colony since 1928, and museums and galleries abound. 

The Basics
Because of its proximity to Budapest, Szentendre is most commonly visited during day trips from the Hungarian capital. Organized half-day and full-day Szentendre tours from Budapest typically take in additional sites around the Danube Bend, including the medieval Visegrad castle and Esztergom castle and basilica, Hungary’s largest church. Some sightseeing tours combine a city tour of Szentendre with a boat ride on the Danube River.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • With lots of museums, galleries, and monuments, Szentendre is a must-visit for art lovers and culture enthusiasts. 
  • Wear comfortable shoes as there are lots of cobbles to contend with. 
  • The uneven surfaces and narrow streets can make Szentendre difficult for wheelchair users to navigate. 

How to Get There
Szentendre is situated about 11 miles (19 kilometers) south of Budapest. Driving via Route 11 takes around 30 minutes. Alternatively, take the HEV train from Batthyány Tér on the Buda side of the river just south of Margaret Bridge. Some organized tours include boat transport to or from the town. 

When to Get There
During the summer months, Szentendre swells with visitors. Go during the week to avoid the weekend crowds, but avoid Mondays as many of the museums are closed.

Gallery- and Museum-Hopping in Szentendre
The town of Szentendre is home to myriad galleries and museums. Admire work by local and national artists at the Art Mill; see sculptures at the Margit Kovács Ceramic Museum; or check out the Ferenczy Museum, dedicated to Károly Ferenczy, the artist credited with bringing impressionism to Hungary. Other important artistic institutions include the Kmetty Museum, which displays works by cubist painter János Kmetty, and the Serbian Ecclesiastical Art Collection.
