Our ship stopped near the old center of Szentendre. Of course here are the most of the souvenir shops of the town :) Many of the tourists stop here and buy something... there are hand-made things, paintings, old photos, postcards and of course many other things too which are totally useless, they just buy them to spend money...

The old city center is not too big. No cars can enter this part of the city which is a very good thing. There are nice buildings, little shops and narrow streets.

Here we found two shops which I can recommend you. If you are at the central square of the city you will see the sign which is on picture 11. 'Langos' is a kind of pancake which can be served with sugar, but mostly with sour cream and cheese. It's really delicious :)

The other shop is a chocolate shop. If you follow the signs which are leading to the train station you will see this little shop on your right. You have to go down a few steps to enter. It's a little place full of different kinds of chocolates, coffee and tea.

We also walked a bit on the 'Duna korzo' which is a street near the Danube river.
