Szentendre is located 20 km northwest of Budapest on the right (west) bank of a branch of the Danube.

In the first half of the 20th century, the town became the place of activity of an artists' colony. Its members have been working there ever since, offering their works to the public in local galleries and exhibitions. In the 1990s, the town opened up to tourism. In recent years, this factor determines the cityscape with an international audience and the usual accompaniments such as hotels, restaurants, cafes and small stores.

Out of seven churches of Szentendre, four are still owned by the Serbian Orthodox Church, namely the churches of Pozsarevacska, the Church of the Annunciation, Preobrazsenszka and the Cathedral of the Assumption, also called Saborna and Belgrade Cathedral.

The Church of St. Peter and Paul took over the Roman Catholic Church, the Reformed Church took over the Opovacska Church and the Church of the Descent of the Holy Spirit (Zbeška Crkva) took over the Greek Catholic Church.
