This town of arts and museums, a cultural paradise for tourists, lies at the "gate" of the Danube Bend, at the junction of the plains and hills.

A small town with a remarkable Mediterranean atmosphere, it was repopulated (following the expulsion of the Ottoman Turks) by Hungarian, Serb, Dalmatian, Slovak, German and Greek settlers in the 18th century.
Memories of this resurgence are preserved to this very day in the town's southern mood, Baroque-style houses, its seven churches, cobbled streets and narrow alleyways.

Szentendre is home to the Open-air Ethnographical Museum which presents the folk architecture of Hungary's most characteristic regions as well as the lifestyles and homes of inhabitants of villages and market towns. Of the town's 22 museums the tourists' favourite is the Margit Kovács Museum. Furthermore, the Szentendre Picture Gallery and numerous other galleries record the rich past of the town and its effervescent artistic present. The recently opened ArtMill Cultural Centre offers the entire palette of Szentendre fine art in this exhibition halls.

After visiting the churches and learning their different masterpiece, guests are recommended to sample the "masterpieces" of fine dining: the close on 50 restaurants around town serve not only the finest Hungarian dishes but a wide variety of international cuisine too. There is an opportunity to just rest and enjoy a drink in the gardens of local confectionaries and cafés, or perhaps in the cellar of the Wine Museum. Five high quality hotels and 15 family-style pensions tempt the guest to linger overnight.
