Czóbel Museum

The museum displaying the periodically renewed exhibition of Bela Czóbel’s lifework is the first one in Hungary that was opened by the artist himself, who was considered to be the most French of the Hungarian painters.

Read more

A seminal figure of Hungarian painting with an international prestige, Béla Czóbel was the first painter to have a museum dedicated to him in Hungary in his own lifetime. Many have contributed to the collection – including his own daughter, Lisa Czóbel – since the Museum was opened in 1975, but the permanent exhibition changed little over the decades. However, when it came to creating the concept of the new permanent exhibition after the 2016 renovation of the museum, the emphasis was not on permanence. The core material itself, which selects from the holdings of the museum, will be renewed year after year, and a room will now be dedicated to Czóbel’s graphic works, which will receive more attention than formerly. Additionally, and in a break with the former practice, works from private and public collections will be on deposit and will be integrated into the structure of the permanent exhibition, adding nuances and new insights to what is an exceptional and formidably rich oeuvre.

ArtMill

The former sawmill is a definitive centre of contemporary art today: its exciting temporary exhibitions are of a quality that meet international standards.

Read more

The 19th-century building of the former sawmill is one of the most interesting and special exhibition venues in Hungary. Based on a idea of painters Dezső Korniss and Pál Deim, the gallery was opened to the general public on the initiative of For Szentendre’s Art Foundation in cooperation with the Szentendre Architects’ Club in June 1999. The aim of the founders was to establish a modern artists’ center. The museum currently hosts temporary exhibitions.

It is the atmosphere, the diverse, special spaces, and the over one and a half decades of professional history of the ArtMill that makes it a definitive center for contemporary art not only on a local, but also on an international scale. It is the third most important exhibition space in Hungary thanks to its features and its temporary exhibitions visited by a large number of people.

One of Szentendre’s most popular museums, opened in 1973, presents the lifework of Kossuth Prize-laureate ceramic artist Margit Kovács (1902–1977). The collection was donated in 1972 by the artist, who is considered to be the innovator of Hungarian ceramic art. The over 300 works, embracing the entire lifework of Kovács, are figural compositions. The second-floor gallery of the new wing presents the reconstruction of Margit Kovács’s home on Pozsonyi Road with her potter’s wheel.

The official copies of her most well-known ceramics are on display, too, so that the blind and visually impaired can also touch these in one of the first rooms.

Roman Lapidarium

The stones remaining from the last centuries of the Roman Empire were once used as building material for watchtowers and cities, an Early Christian chapel, and the tomb stones of a contemporary cemetery.

Read more

The Roman Lapidarium is located between downtown Szentendre and Road 11. For over 400 years, from the second half of 1st century AD, the town played an important strategic role in the Danube bend as it was one of the most endangered parts of the limes, the border of Pannonia. A dense line of encampments and watchtowers protected the limes; a significant military power was present in the area that is today Szentendre, then called Ulcisia Castra. The craftsmen and merchants working for the military lived in the area of the canabæ west and south of the camps. The population of the Roman period was buried along the “limes-road,” the main road along the Danube leading towards Aquincum, but later a small, Early Christian tomb chapel was built, too, on the premises of the late Roman cemetery.
