Szentendre is a small baroque city built on medieval ruins, located at the gate of the Danube Bend. The town is considered to be the Artist's Village or the Painters' Town. (The bus ride to Szentendre takes approximately 30 minutes.) Due to the Mediterranean atmosphere and proximity to Budapest, it a popular place among locals and visitors as well.
First we walk around the historical centre and take a look at the cobblestoned narrow streets, baroque houses and churches. We invite you for a "Lángos" (fried Hungarian flat bread). After the guided tour you can also visit some museums (for example the famous Margit Kovács Ceramic Museum or the Confectionery Museum with marzipan figures), or you can buy some typical Hungarian souvenirs. In summer (May-September) we return to Budapest by boat.
The tour ends in the city centre (pier).

Budapest is one of the most beautiful cities of the world, according to a New York Times article and millions of tourists from all around the globe. What makes it so special and different from the rest of the big European cities, is its various architecture and the oppositions in the city itself. The contrast between the two parts of the city divided by the river Danube is extraordinary and unmatched throughout the world. The perfect way to enjoy this must have experience is with a high class boat cruise under all 6 of the main bridges in the city. With the river cruise at 19:00 you will have the chance to try out all of the greatest dishes the Hungarian kitchen can offer, while enjoying traditional gypsy and folk music performed by three members of the world famous Hungarian Folk Ensemble and Orchestra, featuring an extremely talented player of the most famous Hungarian instrument, the "cimbalom". During the performance, guests will also have a chance to ask for their favourite popular songs from the musicians to play. The wide variety of Hungarian and international dishes are prepared by world champion food sculptor Peter Molnarka who ensured that they will meet all your expectations, whether you're a vegetarian, a gourmet or a real sweet tooth. What makes this cruise really special is its timing. With this 120 minutes cruise you will have a chance to see the city with all of its illuminated glory. All ships are air conditioned and have open air balconies where you can freely admire the exquisite night panorama. After dinner you can also admire the panorama from the open upper deck of the ship.
