Szentendre is a little city very close to Budapest. We found on the internet that there are little ships or pleasure-boats which depart from Budapest and travel to Szentendre. We decided to buy tickets to one of them but only one-way, because on our way back we planned to take the train.

This little ship was for about 60-80 persons who could sit inside and outside. We decided to sit outside where the wind blew so we didn't feel the warmth of the sun so much and also we could take better photos.

The trip was about one and a half hours long from which half an hour was inside Budapest. You should know that Budapest is divided by the Danube river on which we sailed with this ship. The Parliament is on one side of the river and could be seen very well from our position :)

In the next one hour we just sat and chated because nothing interesting could be seen. But the weather was quite nice, so we enjoyed our little trip until we reached our destination.
