Szentendre is a popular tourist site north of
Budapest. It experienced a large influx of Serbians in the 16th
and 17th centuries, when they settled here after fleeing from the
Turks. Their architectural style contributed to the charm of the
buildings and a Balkan-like flavor to the town.
The Serbians built several churches in Szentendre, and four of them
are still owned by the Eastern Orthodox Church.
