We take the tram to a block from Batthyány tér. From there we follow Google Maps to get to the H5 suburban train. The train rambles northward through the city of Budapest and more suburban areas for 40 minutes until we stop at the small town of Szentendre.
There is a map of the city center at the end of the train track and arrows painted on the ground saying "Centre". I think we can do this!
Our first stop is going to be the local museum, but we find a sign on the door stating it is closed for technical reasons. No matter. We walk further into this cute town and stop for coffees and a shacher torte at the Marzipan Cafe. Apparently there is a marzipan museum in the back, but it doesn't call to us.
We hope to see the interior of the Serbian Orthodox Church of the Assumption but it is closed for renovations. Too bad! We pop into some of the artesian shops, examining their handicraft and art. In one we select a ceramic figurine as a remembrance of Hungary.
It's been two hours since the coffee and cake so it must be lunchtime. We choose one of the restaurants along the square and have a traditional Hungarian meal. After lunch we take a slight different route through the Centre to arrive back on the street leading to the train station. Within 15 minutes we are on the train and traveling back to Budapest.
