Photographer's Note

Szentendre is a small Hungarian town located along the Danube not far from Budapest. It has always had a mixed population of Bulgarians, Slavs, Serbians and Germans apart from Hungarians. It still has churches that bear witness to this mixed heritage, the Serbian Orthodox church being one of them.

The town has some really stunning, vibrant buildings with colourful facades along its charming cobbled streets. It always has some baroque structures. Apart from the myriad souvenir shops pouring their wares onto the streets, Szentendre has a fascinating marzipan museum where one can not only buy these sugary delights but also see people making veritable works of art made of them. The two floors of the museum are filled with statues and sculptures of the impressive Hungarian parliament, Princess Diana, Mickey Mouse, musical instruments and scenes from Magyar folk tales.

Szentendre is an easy day trip from Budapest and is really worth a visit.
