Getting there & away
Buses from Budapest's Árpád híd station, which is on the blue metro line, run to Szentendre at least once an hour throughout the day (241Ft, 30 minutes, 16km). Onward service to Visegrád (302Ft, 45 minutes, 23km, eight daily) and Esztergom (606Ft, 1½ hours, 48km, hourly) is good.
The easiest way to reach Szentendre from Budapest is to catch the HÉV suburban train from Batthyány tér in Buda (160Ft, 40 minutes, every 10 to 20 minutes). Remember that a yellow city bus/metro ticket is good only as far as the Békásmegyer stop; you'll have to pay extra to get to Szentendre. Also, many HÉV trains run only as far as Békásmegyer, where you must cross the platform to board the train for Szentendre. The last train leaves Szentendre for Budapest at 11.10pm.
