The other St Andrews

Szentendre

Szentendre is a small town at the end of a suburban railway line from Budapest. I first visited it 22 years ago, in the winter; it was a beautiful place of artists’ studios and galleries, old Serbian churches full of icons, and wide views across an arm of the Danube to a large island.

We went back yesterday, on a summer Sunday at the end of the St Stephen’s Day long weekend, and could hardly move for tourists.
