Szentendre (St. Andrew) is a small, Mediterranean-style town on the Danube River outside of Budapest that (among other things) provides an opportunity for tour groups to keep tourists preoccupied until check-in is available in a Budapest hotel. Szentendre has the feel of a quaint village and is will be particularly liked by people who like local shopping, art galleries, and museums.

The tourist-oriented portion of Szentendre features small shop-lined cobblestone streets with even narrower paths between those streets.

A relatively short and easy climb to St. John the Baptist Parish Church on Church Hill allows one to see some outstanding views of Szentendre and the Danube River.

We only had a few hours in Szentendre and much of that was spent hiding out from a sudden rain storm and eating lunch, but it was an interesting town to experience. One of the more interesting things among the shops was seeing hats and other apparel made out of mushrooms.
