    The place is full with marzipan creations - historical figures, athletes, buildings, fairy tales moments...a 30 minute walk
    There are the proofs a great creative work....
    On the ground floor there is a pastry shop where you can buy a great variety of marzipan figures.

    We visited the Hungarian Open Air Museum on a working day in July 2020.
    It was big and spacious. Unfortunately the train inside the area did not operate. :-(
    There were only a few people around, mostly young children in groups.
    Admission fee was HUF 2,000 for adults. (Under the age of 6, it was free.)
    Parking for passenger car was HUF 900 and you could only pay by cash.
    All in all, it was nice program to see how our ancestors were living!

    We really enjoyed our visit and I would return with other friends. There are many items and I’m sure we’d see something we missed last time.

    Easily accessible from Batthyány tér on the HEV (suburban railway) and about a 40 minute ride. From the station it is a 5 minute walk to the old town. I spent my time wandering round, looking at the building and absorbing the atmosphere. I walked in a few back streets, visited two excellent churches and walked down to the Danube. I ignored all the touristy shops. There are plenty of places to eat if you're bhungry. A lovely place and well worth a visit.

    I wasn't familiar with the works of Margit Kovacs so nearly didn't go into this museum, but am really glad that I did. Her work is widely known in Hungary, but not so much outside. The museum looks very small and discreet from the outside, but you go in and out of different building using a central courtyard so it is much larger than expected. The ceramic work was very interesting, some of it quite touching. The work was displayed extremely well, nice signage in Hungarian and English with lots of little video screens around.
    The security guards keep a very close eye on visitors here which is to be expected when dealing with such fragile exhibits. When at reception, you have to place any bulky bags in a free locker, as you

    I made the short trip on suburban railway from Budapest to Szentendre to visit this museum - and felt it well worthwhile. The fact that the trip only cost me around 1 euro each way as an add-on my Budapest travel ticket was a bonus. Those that moan about the price should consider what one might pay elsewhere - around 3 euros for an admission with a photo pass seems fine to me, and those in the party who don’t want to take photos get in even cheaper! There is a fine collection of trams through the ages, so even though there is a mix of old and new trams still running on the streets of Budapest, there are plenty of others to see here. There are also a few buses and engines, but the trams are the star of the show! The volunteer staff don't speak a lot of English, but in context there are no issues with paying the entrance fee etc.

    This village is a very small tourist area now, but loaded with churches. This is just one of the many located within blocks of each other.

    We found the Museum on a stroll through Szentendre which is a very cute city near Budapest on the Danube. There is restaurant upstairs and then the owner leads you you down for the tasting in the cellar. It is about 15€ per person. We had one white, two reds and two Tokajis. There were delightful little appetizers bites to clear the pallet. The owner is quite knowledgeable about wine in general so can compare the wines from Hungary to the wines of other regions in Europe. He discusses the various wine regions and goes in to much more detail about the regions from the wines that are being tasted. It is close to a 700 square mete cellar with a large collection of wines. I am sure the list of wines changes from time to time on the tasting. It takes about 45 minutes for the tasting depending on the questions you ask and the time you want to spend exploring. Other than the Tokajis you probably have not had many Hungarian wines as not many are exported to the US, especially red but they are worth trying for sure. Well worth spending some time visiting in you enjoy wine, it’s origins and history.

    The Ferenczy family had a lot of great artists. You can see here in the collection some works of different family members. It is worth to visit.

    we are glad to look from outside to see this oldest church in town. The view from the church to look at the town and the small alley is great for scenery pictures!

    Szentendre was originally a town of primarily Serbs and Greeks. Although the current Serb population appears to be small, the local Serbian museum and church are well worth visiting. The museum is small, but has a nice assortment of icons, church vestments, and liturgical items. They aren’t highly ornate. The vestments appear to have been embroidered locally, which makes them more interesting and meaningful to me. Admission to the museum also includes admission to the pretty Serbian Orthodox church. The staff lovingly preserve their Serbian heritage.

    It was not so difficult to find as entering into this Gallery. But we did. We find this very special in the middle of traditional crafts shop dumping. It colors well the conventional products around. Absolutely recommended to visit.

    This Serbian Orthodox church was built around 1746, soon after the largest original group of Serbian settlers arrived to Szentendre. However, the bell-tower and the facade were only completed in 1778. While it is devoted to the feast of Christ's transfiguration, it is also called the Tabacka church, based on the Serbian word for tanners, a common occupation among the original settlers. The interior is richly decorated, with a wealth of paintings, icons and the most magnificent iconostasis, thought to be the work of an anonymous Ukranian painter. It dates back to the original completion date and it certainly deserves a careful visit.
