Szentendre The suburban train may take you South to Batthyányi tér Place in the South, just opposit to the parliament building or North to the small town Szentendre on the river Danube, a culturally important visiting worth place about 30 km away from Budapest.
Avoided by pest, survived only a small part of the city population the 150 year long turkish occupation with its holocoust activity. Jewish bookkeepers in the Hungarian Capital Buda were controlling tax collections and sent muslim soldiers to the town, where they tought, turks could collect more grant for their military.  People who could not, was slaughtered in the halal way. The population of Szentendre declined from 15.000 to less than 2.000 until the turkish army was chased out of Hungary in 1686. This time as a straight response, the jewish bookkeepers and their families were slaughtered by the Austro-Hungarian army. After the Hungrians won this war, the turks chased many serbs out of Serbia. About 6.000 of them came to Szentendre, where population was missing at that time. Only their descendants were able to go back to their own country in the 18th and 19t centuries. The remaining serb fraction makes about 20% of the 23.000 inhabitants of Szentendre today. Szentendre - Town Centre
Budapest suburban railway The Suburban train, that starts at Batthyány Square (opposit to the parliament) may take you 30 km to the North to artists Town Szentendre.
Szentendre is the largest settlement of the Danube Bend, located north of Budapest on the eastern side of the Danube. The quiet town is well-known as the city of arts and museums. The town hosts the famous Open Folklore Museum also called Skander and 16 other museums which present the rich arts and cultural life of the city. Szentendre Skanzen Museum
For two months, from the end of June until the end of August, it offers programmes in nearly every branch of art to visitors and locals alike: classical, contemporary and light comedies, operetta, contemporary dance as well as pantomime, including three premieres. During the festival the streets, squares, churches and yards of the town come alive with theatre performances, concerts, films, exhibitions, as well as various programmes for children and events that showcase traditions.  
The programme of the Szentendre Summer Festival is taking place at several locations, like the courtyard of the town hall and the ArtMill amongst others usually at the end of August. Besides exhibitions, during the summer the old mill houses concerts, theatre performances and festival programmes as well. As during the past 30 years, performances of the Szentendre Theatre will take centre stage, presenting diverse programmes from virtually every genre, from opera to prose.
Visegrád - Central Europe´s largest Mediaeveal Castle Keep
The stretch of the river known as the Danube Bend is one of the most attractive parts of all Hungary. The river follows the form of a double “S” shape, which it carved out for itself between the hills after the last Ice Age. The town of Visegrád is in the most picturesque part. The town’s principal monuments are the thirteenth century citadel perched high on the hill and the fourteenth century royal palace at the bottom. Their golden age was the time of the Renaissance King, Matthias, noted for his discerning taste. He added terraces, a grand courtyard, a red marble ornamental well and baths. 
Visegrad - Summer Residence of the King
Guests visiting from far and wide regularly likened the palace to a paradise on earth. After Matthias’ time the buildings fell into ruins, were completely destroyed by fire and buried by mud and rocks tumbling down the hillside. Now, however, thanks to decades of archćological excavation and painstaking research, the palace’s Renaissance grand courtyard has been faithfully reconstructed. 
Similarly, by reconstruction of a section of the original walls, visitors to the Citadel can appreciate how strong a fortress it would have been in its heyday. This is the finest lookout point anywhere on the Danube Bend. The nearby thirteenth century castle keep, the largest anywhere along the line of the Danube, has survived the ages completely intact. The five-storey, 31 metre high hexagonal Salamon’s Tower today houses original wells and statues found during the excavations of the Renaissance palace. Salamon Tower at Visegrad
Esztergom Basilica Esztergom - here is the largest Hungarian Church
Esztergom is located 60 km North of Budapest, about one hour drive by car or you also may take the hydrofoil at Vigado ter Square in Budapest in the summer.
This town is situated on the banks of the Danube tend to show their best faces to those approaching by boat. At Esztergom, Hungary’s ecclesiastical centre and seat of the Roman Catholic Archbishop, the Basilica and the walls of the ancient castle rise imposingly on the Danube’s right bank. The Basilica, as well as being Hungary’s largest church, is noteworthy for its remarkable altarpiece depicting the Assumption, which is the largest single-canvas oil-painted altarpiece in the world.
The church’s stately interior contains Hungary’s finest complete Renaissance monument, the Bakócz Chapel, built from red marble in the early 1500’s. The Cathedral Treasury is the richest in Hungary. In the nearby Bishop’s Palace is a Christian Museum noted for its valuable collection of fine arts.
The first fortress was built on Castle Hill in 972, and it was here that the founder of the Hungarian State and Church, King Saint Stephen, was born, earning the town’s epithet “Cradle of Hungary”. The twelfth century castle chapel and one of the symbols of Esztergom, the rose window, vividly recall the importance of the former palace building.
Esztergom is located on the Hungarian border, the other side of the river Danube is Sturowo in Slovakia. Sturowo is also called Párkány on its Hungarian name, where Hungarians build the main part of the population. The bridge between these two townships was blown up in Word War II. The reconstruction was not desired by the czech rulers at all, they wanted to seprate Hungarian families for good. At the end of communist dictatorship and under international political pressure, the ruins of the bridge were replaced.  Bridge over the river Danube from Esztergom to Sturowo
If you go to Slovakia, Sturowo is the first village over the river Danube. You need to go only 1 km to get into one of the best known hot spa in this area in Sturowo. It´s open air bath is open in the whole year and this is a place, where you probably get better Hungarian country style food, than in Hungary. Here you may get the words most famos Slovak and Czech beers, served in the breweries own cheap eating-tents on the hot spa beach.
