    Favorite thing: 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.

    English-language guidebook

    In my dreams

    Favorite thing: Since there is a lack of any English-language guidebook, here is my proposal onto the title page of the "Eyewitness Travel Guide to Szentendre" being published once.

    Fondest memory: If only I could see this once in the bookstore's shop-window

    Get lost

    Favorite thing: 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.

    Fondest memory: Narrow streets and not knowing where I was going. This is how we discovered the souvenir shop the church and the Serbian Orthodox Museum.

    Orthodox

    Favorite thing: One thing I noticed about Szentendre was it's Serbian Orthodox influences. The Plague Cross in the town square is covered in Icons, plus there is the amazing Serbian Orthodox Eclesiastcal Museum.

    Fondest memory: Walking about the Museum looking at Icons - there was just something so "Other Word" about them. Hard to put into words.

    Where is the station?

    by mvtouring Written Apr 15, 2009

    Favorite thing: The station is located quite a distance from the "main" part of town, or is that the old part of town?

    Favorite thing: One of the best things to do here is to wander around and discover what is waiting around the next corner. Some little streets were quite steep.

    Tourists everywhere

    by mvtouring Written Apr 15, 2009

    Favorite thing: Being a local here, must drive you mad. The place is flooded with tourists especially over weekends. So if you visit, be careful that you do not bump into another tourist causing them harm.

    Favorite thing: I loved these colourful buildings, they reminded me of Italy with their green shutters :) It is amazing how some colourful buildings really gives an otherwise ordinary street something special.

    Favorite thing: A lifesize statue of Michael Jackson in the Marzipan Museum. Sorry Michael, but you look better in Marzipan than you do in real life.
