The pretty small town of Szentendre is a great one day trip from Budapest. Right by the town locates the Szentedre Skanzen, an open air museum, the largest ethnographic collection in Hungary.

The Hungarian Skanzen in Szentendre  was founded in 1967 after years of preparation by ethnographers, as the “Village Museum Department” of the Budapest Ethnographical Museum. In 1972 it became independent. The museum has an area of 46 hectares. Traditional lifestyle and preserved folk heritage are presented through multiple exhibition scenes of 10 sections and 340 buildings. These element of Hungarian heritage include peasant houses, furnitures, craftmen’s tools, folkcostumes. Buildings were delivered here from all over Hungary.

Demonstrations of folk handicrafts are held on weekends and holidays by Hungarian folk culture – like Pentecost,Easter and more – are celebrated in a traditional way.
