If you’re curious about exploring a little further afield than Budapest (40 minutes by train, to be exact), a day trip to the historic town of Szentendre is just what you’re looking for.

You’ll join one of our local Budapest hosts and explore this artistic spot - so artistic that it’s also known as the City of Artists and Painters. You’ll spend the day exploring the charming cobbled streets, the colorful houses with their Mediterranean influence and marveling at the local artists’ studios and galleries.

Pockets of the town date back to medieval times too - if the walls could talk! Amongst the myriad of galleries and historic squares you’ll find treasures like the Ur Eleonóra Batik Galeria where you can buy beautiful silk batik to take home with you, the Szentendre Art Mill which exhibits a diverse range of works by local and international artists, and quirky museums like the famous Szamos Marzipan Museum.

Needless to say, you could spend all day just eating marzipan if that sounds like your vibe. But, we will point out that as well as authentic restaurants where you can feast on goulash, the town is also known for its Serbian cuisine if you fancy trying something different. Yum.
