The arty atmosphere of Szentendre

After partying in Budapest I needed a change of scenery and especially some time to relax. There is no better place to do this than in Szentendre.

Szentendre is a quaint little village outside Budapest which has a totally arty flair. No wonder it was full of tourists when we arrived there on a Sunday afternoon. It is only a short distance from Budapest but completely different.

The village Szentendre is really charming and you can easily navigate the small squares and streets. Lamp shades are drawn over most streets and give the whole place a very festive atmosphere.

There are a couple of small museums and art installations all around the village as well. It’s fun walking through an open gate and find oneself across some laundry. Upon closer inspection though the laundry is made of plexiglass and full of words.

Some alleys are so narrow that you can touch the sides with your elbows. I like walking through these in daylight.

Walking around will give you sense of calm and peace. No cars are allowed and it is relatively quiet in Szentendre. This is a place where you can relax and enjoy a couple of hours away from the modern hustle and bustle. Yours, Pollybert
