my trip to Szentendre had an unexpected bonus - the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral and museum. A very reasonable entrance charge gives access to both and 1 hour should be sufficient time to see everything. The museum has many artifacts from times gone by, although the English description gives nothing about the history or background of the item. The cathedral is... More

Szentendre's Serbian community makes the city interesting and visiting one of the Orthodox churches is a must. The Orthodox museum displays a selection of icons and religious objects - like other similar museums. The ticket includes a visit to the Belgrade Church.

Their orthodox cathedral was built in the later C18th and externally looks little different from any Hungarian baroque church. The museum is beside the Cathedral, and the Museum ticket allows you access to the Cathedral. We were expecting older, more traditional Orthodox icons, but there ate none.... More

interesting artifacts from the past and living church in the everyday . Once you are in town it is a nice to see place but not a magnet.

A very interesting insight, although very small indeed. A few photo opportunities of things that you would normally not get to see.

If you're a Christian Orthodox art geek then don't miss it. Otherwise likely to be averagely interesting. Don't lose your ticket so you can get into the church later and see the spectacular iconostasis.

A Serbian monk guided us through the museum. Learned lots about Serbia, Hungary, (Serbian) Orthodox Church.
