Ferenczy Museum

Szentendre is centered on Fo tér (Main Square), with cobblestoned streets winding off it in all directions. Wander around and make sure to take a stroll along the Danube as well. You'll have no trouble running into souvenir shops and art galleries. Here are some other things to look for

[Add Sight]

Open-Air Ethnographical Museum (Szabadtéri Néprajzi Múzeum)

Edit This

A glimpse into now-vanished peasant culture. This village museum, or skanzen, includes cottages, mills and towers, all commandeered from different regions of the countryside (often over the objections of the locals!) and re-erected here. Buildings are grouped according to the region of Hungary from where they originated. Folk handicrafts are also demonstrated here.The museum is about 3 km from the center of Szentendre. Buses leave for the Open-Air Ethnographic Museum about once an hour (on average) between 08:00 and 19:00 from platform No. 7 at the bus station, next to more..

Margit Kovács Museum (Kovács Margit Múzeum)

Edit This

Charming or cloying? Take a look at the life's work of this ceramic artist and decide for yourself. Margit Kovács addressed religious and family themes with folk-inspired ceramic art. Her ingenuous style, though dismissed by some art critics, won public adoration.

For the Ferenczys, art was a family affair. Ferenczy Károly (1862-1917) and his wife Olga Fialka were talented painters. Their three children also had a gift: Béni sculpted bronze nudes, Noémi weaved gobelin tapestries, and Valér painted. Their collected works are on display here.

Roman Catholic Parish Church (Plébánia templom)

Edit This

Szentendre's oldest building was first built in the 13th century, then reconstructed in the 18th century in a Baroque style. The old iron stake jutting out above and left of the entrance is actually part of a medieval sundial. Inside the church is a gorgeous carved pulpit. Catch some great views of the city from Church Hill.
