This was a place we wanted to visit when in Budapest and it didn't disappoint, From the pretty cobbled streets, cute white painted houses and the small path ways with lamp-shades and umbrellas hanging above them makes this place so quaint. The souvenir shops are almost all the same, some though just deal in one or two things so worth looking out for. Also dotted around these streets and those further up the hill are some really nice museums, but check the themes and opening times as some not open on certain days of the week. Icecream parlours are amazing here and if you love or fancy trying TuttiFruitti then there is only one place to go - Centrum Fagyizo!
Also lots of really nice food can be found at the bars along the river front including Lagos sellers and other Hungarian treats, or just sit on a bench as we did and wile away the time sat by the Danube.
Please be careful to check anything that looks handmade as I bought a beautiful felt and hessian bag but it broke by the time we got back to the station and had to be returned!
It is very easy to get here by train from Budapest and passes by some interesting historical places, or there are ferries along the Danube but again, you need to check days they operate as it's not everyday (not in late June anyway)
However you get here, you will love it......and it will be up to how long you decide to be here for but remember, if you travel by train or ferry, these are both public means of transport and do get quite busy towards end of the working day. (Ferry more so due to us tourists too :) )

Little Hungarian village which is extremely attractive with the colorful umbrellas hanging in one of the streets and the beautifully decorated shops with unique things to buy like some gorgeous scarves, very cute pencils of all shapes and sizes, toys, Budapest wine miniatures, crochet table tops. The main square has some colorful lamp shades hanging, ice cream shops, coffee shops.
A short excursion to Szentendre is a gud idea from the hustle and bustle of Budapest which has btw, horrible traffic.

Szentendre is a tourist town, with souvenir shops, cafés, and numerous art galleries and art museums. It's also an art colony — hence the galleries and the art museums.

The main square is quite attractive, as are the streets that converge there.

This is a cute town for a short visit. Lots of shopping and food! It is a lovely stop if in the area but I don’t recommend it as a primary destination.
