Fodor's Expert Review Bogdányi Street

Szentendre Neighborhoods
Bogdányi Street is one of the main shopping streets, where you'll find the usual tourist fare interspersed with art galleries and folk art, but don't restrict yourself to this one area. Flooded with tourists in summer, Szentendre is saturated with the requisite souvenir shops. Among the attractive (but overpriced) goods sold in every store are dolls dressed in traditional folk costumes, wooden trinkets, pottery, paprika, wine, and colorful hand-embroidered tablecloths, doilies, and blouses. The best bargains are the hand-embroidered blankets and bags sold by dozens of elderly women in traditional folk attire, who stand for hours on the town's crowded streets. Many Szentendre stores stay open all day on weekends, unlike those in Budapest.
