Godollo has just one tourist site, the Royal Palace (Grassalkovich Castle). Empress Sissi stayed often in this palace. Visiting the palace you can get a good idea of the royal life in that days.
Szentendre is a more or less touristy place just north of Budapest. It has some small hilly streets, some Serb churches and a Catholic church on a hill with a view over the city and the river Danube. Three km's outside of S. is an open-air museum with old churches and farm houses etc.
From Budapest till S. you can take a train. Don't know how much it is. But suppose it will be rather cheap.
Happy travels
Jaap

Godollo: The main attraction is the Grassalkovich Castle. It takes 2-3 hours to look around there. Then you may continue on to the Castle Garden, then pass over the railway station and look around in the neighborhood of the University of Agriculture (officially: Saint Stephen University). Godollo can be reached in 30 minutes from Budapest-Keleti station by interurban and suburban trains, or from Ors vezer tere (M2 terminal) by the HEV suburban trains in 60 minutes. I recommend trains from Keleti, they're faster and cheaper, though stop 10 minutes away from the castle.
Szentendre: This town offers more to the tourist - therefore, it is touristy. For some it's okay, for some it's already too much touristy. Wonderful downtown with zigzagging, hilly streets, Serbian Church, loads of galleries and museums (it's a very important arts center of Hungary), Danube Corso, a few Roman ruins and the most important: the open-air museum introducing folk culture of different regions and ethnicities of Hungary. The town can be reached by bus from Arpad hid bus station (access: metro M3) in 30 minutes, or in the same time from Batthyany ter (metro M2) by HEV Szentendre. Buses are cheaper. The Skanzen (the open air museum) may be reached by local bus service 5 or 5A, departing from Szentendre bus and HEV station.

Just realised you've asked about fares:
The Budapest Card partly covers the costs of getting to Godollo and Szentendre if you take HEV trains: it is valid till the city limits (Ilonatelep and Bekasmegyer stations). Beyond these, you need a supplementary ticket.

In my previous posting, I was wrong about HEV fares, and this way, about comparisons to prices of other transportation.

With BC, the prices are the following:
Budapest-Keleti - Godollo train: 346 Ft
Budapest-Ors vezer tere - Godollo HEV train: 310 Ft
Budapest, Arpad hid - Szentendre, autobusz-allomas bus: 254 Ft
Budapest-Batthyany ter - Szentendre HEV: 310 Ft

If you go to Szentendre make sure you go to the little Langos place that is nestled in a stone stairway just off one of the main paths. They have the best langos! ;) I have to go to Szentendre everytime I'm back in Hungary because it's just a very cute town with cute shops and lots of great food! :)

Hi I have only been to Szentendre and it was very nice, you can catch the ferry up as it is on the Danube, or train, vice versa. It is a small town, many nice old buildings, arts and crafts , restaurants etc, I think a half day is enough and then see something in Budapest when you return. I have photos on my Szentendre page which will give you an insight.
Good Luck, Mike

Do not forget to phone the family from time to time, just to let them know you are ok. They have two types of phone booths ..... coin opperated and card operated. Very difficult to find coin opperated booths though.

Get lost

This is such a small old village that I didn't even find a map. However you can just wander the narrow streets and you will have a delightful experience. The photo shows a little souvenir shop where we found some Unicum and of course paprika. They are both cheaper here than in Budapest. The lady in the shop was delightful and friendly. When I thanked her in Hungarian she exclaimed, "So you speak Hungarian" with a big smile. When I said "about 5 words" she made me recite the other 4. The church in the photo I never identified but there are lots of old and wonderful churches here. Most will be open for you to explore. Narrow streets and not knowing where I was going. This is how we discovered the souvenir shop the church and the Serbian Orthodox Museum.

History

by blint

Szentendre was founded in the 14th century by Serbian refugees who fleeing from the Turks. Most of the Serbs left during the Habsburg era which made the town loose it's commercial importance and now is just another quiet little town on the Danube. In the early 20th century it began to attract many artists who have suceeded in putting the town back on the map this time as a place to paint and sell your arts and crafts to day trippers.

Travelling there at winter

by cold_dead_bunny

Asolutelly no people on streets, met in total about 5 tourists, though, walked around all old city center. Feels like time stucked there, if not mind parked cars (many trabants eh eh) . It was cold and raining, and few cozy cafes with awesome hot wine saved us... No regrets I went there even at bad weather, this city deffinatly has its own spirit, despite beeing a very touristic spot.
