Stop At: Szentendre

Szentendre is a beautiful settlement at the Danube ca. 25 km north of Budapest. It offers a mediterranean atmosphere and houses artists. Originally Serb & Croat settlement, therefore with a huge Serb church. The best is to park the bicycles somewhere at the river and make a walk through the pedestrian area. Plenty of restaurants are waiting for you. There are beaches, where you can bath and on weekends (Friday-Saturday-Sunday) a boat leaves at 17:00 (05 p.m.) to Budapest. It will also carry your bicycles and arrives in the City Center at 18:00 (6 p.m.). Take care, the boat can be crowded and is usually very much on time. So make sure to arrive early enough, at least 15 minutes before departure. On weekdays there is no boat, but the option to take the regional train "HEV" back to Budapest. It stops at Margaret Bridge (Buda Side) and Batthyany Square (opposite the parliament on Buda). Train service several times per hour.

Duration: 3 hour
