Tour summary - Szentendre history

Szentendre has been populated for over a thousand years. During the Romans' reign until the 4th century A.D., it was called Ulcisia Castra (Wolf Castle in Latin). The town is situated on a series of small slopes right along the River Danube. The colorful Baroque buildings, cobblestone streets and narrow alleyways leading to hilltop churches amaze children and their parents alike  there is something for everyone in this town! Speaking of kids, highlights include the Marzipan Museum, where Hungary's former rulers statues will greet you with a sweet smile , as they are all made of marzipan and chocolate. Wine connoisseurs will certainly appreciate the Hungarian National Wine Museum, set up in an ancient wine cellar below the water level of the Danube.
Since the 1500s Szentendre is the center of the Serb community in Hungary, the Holy Trinity Monument, the Belgrade Church and the Blagovestenska Church are important historical sights. The Margit Kovacs Museum is an extensive collection of Margit Kovacs's ceramic works featuring a unique synthesis of folk and Byzantine motifs.

We enjoy a walk from the parking lot along the main street (lined with shops and art galleries) and the small city centre while the guide offers historical facts and interesting stories about Szentendre. We also take you to the Hungarian National Wine Museum where you can taste excellent Hungarian wine and build up an appetite before the end of the tour.

This tour is one of our half-day countryside trips that give visitors plenty of individual shopping and free time. Bringing your camera is highly recommended!
