A TRIP TO VISEGRAD
Time to depart Szentendre and follow Highway 11 alongside the Danube river to Visegrad.
As we were making our way to Vienna, we only stopped for morning tea beside the Danube River.
It was here, the ferries crossed to the other side of the River. The scenery was lovely and a found a beautifully done Mural!
There is more to offer than what we did though!
Visegrád is famous for the remains of the Early Renaissance summer palace of King Matthias Corvinus of Hungary and the medieval citadel.
There is an Upper Castle, Lower Castle, Royal Palace and the remains of a Military camp from the 4th century located on Sibrik Hill.
Easy to reach from Budapest.

Serbian Orthodox Museum
As testimony to the influx of Slavic groups in the 17th and 18th C there is a small but lovely Serbian Orthodox Museum. Quite frankly I cannot give you the exact location as we stumbled upon it while wandering the narrow back streets of Szentendre. Your visit should include such wandering if for no other reason than to escape the hordes of tourist in the center of town. You will also get a better look at this lovely place and discover who knows what.
Take a hike in the Pilis hills
This was a foggy day in Autumn on a 30 km hike with my then wife and daughter
on her back aged 1. You should be quite fit for the hike in Pilisszentlaszlo.
