Main square of Szentendre, with the Blagovestenska Serbian Orthodox Church ("Greek Church") - Szentendre, Hongarije Main square of Szentendre, with the Blagovestenska Serbian Orthodox Church ("Greek Church")

Szentendre is often called a jewelry box due to its diversity and variegation. If it is true, then the town square is the crown jewel in it.

Blagovestenska Serbian Orthodox Church (so called "Greek Church") - Szentendre, Hongarije Blagovestenska Serbian Orthodox Church (so called "Greek Church")

Initially on the site of the Blagovestenska Church (the Serbian word means "Annunciation to the Blessed Virgin Mary") there was a wooden church. That was built in 1690 by Greek, Serbian and other people from the Balkans, who were fleeing from the Turks and settled down in the area between the town square and the Danube bank of Szentendre. Later the iconostasis (which was painted in 1721 and represents the "Annunciation of Our Lady") of that wooden church was moved to the church in Izbég. Formerly Izbég was an independent settlement, but today it is a part of Szentendre town.

The current baroque and rococo style stone building was supposedly designed by Andreas Mayerhoffer, just like the Serbian church in Pest or the Cathedral of Kalocsa, which are quite similar to this church in Szentendre. The Blagovestenska Church was consecrated in 1754 and dedicated to the "Annunciation of Our Lady" (in Hungarian "Gyümölcsoltó Boldogasszony"). The most important treasures of the church are the furnitures from the 18th century, the rococo iconostasis and the episcopal throne with canopy.

From the 1920s onwards there were less and less liturgies and religious ceremonies, and nowadays the Blagovestenska Church functions primarily as a museum.

The cobble stoned alley way goes to the verdant Church Hill (Templomdomb) - Szentendre, Hongarije The cobble stoned alley way goes to the verdant Church Hill (Templomdomb)

It may seem that the small cobbled and narrow streets of Szentendre have Mediterranean atmosphere. Those who feel like this are right, because beside the Hungarians there were people of several nations from the Balkans and its surroundings who settled down in this town, already centuries ago. They brought their culture and of course their architectural styles here which contributed to the diversity of Szentendre. Among other things this is why the town is often called a "jewelry box".

St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Parish Church (Keresztelő Szent János templom, sometimes called Castle Church) - Szentendre, Hongarije St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Parish Church (Keresztelő Szent János templom, sometimes called Castle Church)

The Roman Catholic so-called "Castle Church" (in Hungarian "Vártemplom", officially St. John the Baptist Parish Church or "Keresztelő Szent János-plébániatemplom") was the first stone church of Szentendre, and also the oldest building of the town. The church had already four reconstructions, but the styles of the different ages (the romanesque, the gothic and the baroque) have a harmonious mix in this building.

Szentendre was under the jurisdiction of the bishopric of Veszprém already in 1002. In the 13th century the settlement became the archdeacon's seat, and at that time the building of a church was begun on the top of the "Várdomb" ("Castle Hill"), where the traces of it still can be found. In the 14th century it was converted to a gothic church that already has the same layout and floorplan as the current church. Later Roman Catholic Dalmats used it who fled here from the Turks, but in those times the church became ruined and it was renovated only in the 17th century.

The baroque rebuilding was supported by the Zichy family and it was begun in 1710. In the mid-18th century the church almost received its final, present-day form, but in 1818 its ornate tower was collapsed and it got the current simplier spire only after then. Below the tower on a support pillar there is a unique sun-dial, which was carved from a single stone in the 1300s.

Narrow alley way and the entrance of the Serbian Orthodox Episcopal Cathedral (Beograda Church or Belgrade Church) - Szentendre, Hongarije Narrow alley way and the entrance of the Serbian Orthodox Episcopal Cathedral (Beograda Church or Belgrade Church)

Many people probably do not even realize that Belgrade (in Serbian "Beograd"), the current capital city of Serbia is actually the medieval Nándorfehérvár town. Until the Hungarian language reform period (ca. 1770-1872) the town was called "Lándorfejérvár" in Hungarian, in which the word "lándor" means "Danube Bulgarian people", as well as "fejérvár" or "fehérvár" means "white castle".

The Battle of Belgrade or Siege of Nándorfehérvár in 1456 was a very important event of the Hungarian-Turkish wars. The tenfold outnumbered Christian Hungarian defenders gained a huge victory over the Ottoman troops of Sultan Mehmed II. The Hungarian army was led by John Hunyadi (in Hungarian "Hunyadi János", father of King Matthias Corvinus of Hungary), as well as the leaders of the castle defenders were his brother-in-law Michael Szilágyi and John of Capistrano (in Hungarian "Szilágyi Mihály" and "Kapisztrán János"). The triumph stopped the Turkish expansion into Europe for about seventy years, and in memory of the victory the church bells are rang at noon every day in whole Hungary.

However, it should be mentioned that the daily noon bell was ordered by Pope Callixtus III already about a month before the victory (29 June vs. 22 July of 1456) to call the Christian believers to a daily prayer, similarly as the Muslims do. In Hungary and some other European countries the two events were merged and the noon bell is attributed only to the Nándorfehérvár (Belgrade) victory. Moreover, it is a tradition in Hungary since decades ago that the bells are ringing every day at noon on the public service television and radio channels as well.

It should be also noted that the French-born castle defender St. John of Capistrano (Giovanni da Capestrano) was also an Italian speaker and theologian, as well as a leader of Crusader armies and today one of the patron saints of Hungary.

Wrought iron gate of the Orthodox Episcopal Cathedral (Beograda Church or Belgrade Church) - Szentendre, Hongarije Wrought iron gate of the Orthodox Episcopal Cathedral (Beograda Church or Belgrade Church)

The single-towered and typical Hungarian baroque style Belgrade Church was built in the mid-18th century. The ornate rococo style wrought-iron gate is a work of the local master locksmith Márton Ginesser from 1772. Inside the church the most important values are primarily the large, gilded and colored linden-wood iconostasis (the icon on it was created by Vazul Ösztovics in 1781), as well as the canopied altar table, the gold-plated linden-wood pulpit and the other rococo furnitures.

Steeple of the Reformed Opovacka (or Opovacska) Church in Rákóczy Street - Szentendre, Hongarije Steeple of the Reformed Opovacka (or Opovacska) Church in Rákóczy Street

The baroque Protestant (Reformed) church was built in 1746, then in 1770 it was extended, but the tower was completed only in 1777. Formerly it was called Opovacka Church, because it was erected by refugees from Opovac, Serbia, on the site of an earlier wooden church. The Reformed Church received the building in 1913, and its former iconostasis was moved to a church in Hercegszántó village.

Blagovestenska Serbian Orthodox Church ("Greek Church") and the baroque and rococo style Plague Cross in the center of the square - Szentendre, Hongarije Blagovestenska Serbian Orthodox Church ("Greek Church") and the baroque and rococo style Plague Cross in the center of the square

The main square of Szentendre wasn't designated in an office, but it is a naturally formed town center, probably already since the Middle Ages. Not so long ago it was a junction of three main roads, there was car traffic even directly around the Plague Cross. Fortunately today only the pedestrian passers-by allowed to use the square (and sometimes a horse-drawn carriage as well, for the delight of tourists).

The Plague Cross is hiding between sprawling acacia trees - Szentendre, Hongarije The Plague Cross is hiding between sprawling acacia trees

The late-rococo style Orthodox metal cross is decorated with icons and standing on a stone pedestal, it was set by the Serbian Trade Association in 1763 (so that's why it is also called "Merchants' Cross"). It was erected to express the people's gratitude that the town escaped from the plague. According to the folk tradition there is a person buried upside down under the cross.
