Szentendre Day Trip from Budapest

Szentendre Day Trip from Budapest, Budapest, Hungary (B)

I followed a recommendation from a local friend and took the train to Szentendre on an afternoon day trip from Budapest.

If you’re visiting Budapest and have a free day or half a day, I recommend you take this day trip. Getting to Szentendre from Budapest is fast and easy and you can visit with a guided tour or use my route below for a self-guided tour.
