Stop At: Main Square (Fo ter), Szentendre Hungary

Centrepieced by the Baroque-styled Merchant’s Cross erected in 1763, Szentendre’s cobblestoned main square is the bustling heart of this historic town, lined with restaurants, ice-cream shops, museums and more. Here the Blagoveštenska Orthodox Church towers over everything, while winding streets and alleys stretch out in all directions – head downhill to the riverfront or hike uphill to find City Hall or Templom Square.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Saint John the Baptist's Parish Church, Szentendre, Templom tér, 2000 Hungary

Also known as the Castle Church, the oldest building of the city was originally built between 1241 and 1283. Its present day plan was finalised when it was rebuilt in Gothic style in the 14th century. It was again renovated, this time in a Baroque style by the Zichy family in 1710. Its present day outlook was completed between 1742 and 1751.
The building is 200 m2 large, its tower is 29 meters tall. Its walls are supported by buttresses which are typical to Gothic architecture. On the buttress near the tower, there is a sun clock from the 1300's, a unique piece from the history of Hungary. The visitor can step inside the church through Gothic stone doors.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Szamos Marzipan Exhibition and Workshop, Dumtsa Jeno utca 12., Szentendre Hungary

Behind the popular Szamos confectionery on Dumtsa Jenő utca, this old-timey museum is a family favourite for its multi-coloured statues all made from sugary marzipan, ranging from figurines based on fairy tales and Disney cartoons to life-sized statues of Michael Jackson and Princess Diana. Visitors can watch new marzipan artworks being created by craftspeople using customary tools from a century ago.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Bükkös-patak, Hungary

Cutting through Szentendre’s southernmost section, this shallow stream features a paved walkway popular among local parents for evening strolls as their kids frolic by the burbling waters. This rivulet forms an unofficial borderline for the touristy part of town.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Dumtsa Jenő Street, Szentendre, Dumtsa Jenő u., 2000 Hungary

This shop-lined main conduit toward Fő tér buzzes with pedestrian traffic and conversations at pavement cafés. Here the Tourinform Szentendre office near Bükkös Brook bridge provides free multilingual information and maps, while neighbouring businesses include private galleries, restaurants with terrace tables, diversely themed museums, and unique stores offering regionally made gifts and modern artworks.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Bogdányi Way, Szentendre, Bogdányi út, 2000 Hungary

Leading gently downhill from Fő tér towards riverfront Lázár Cár tér (by the ferryboat dock), this rustic lane is also a busy commercial zone. Many stores proffer extremely typical Hungarian keepsakes, but some showrooms have authentically interesting clothing, handicrafts and more. Local painters sometimes set up shop alfresco here, dabbling at canvases while displaying freshly dried artworks for sale.
