On a recent trip to Hungary, I visited the wonderful Caprice jewelry museum.

It is located in the artsy city of Szentendre, which is very near to Budapest and easily reached by train from the capital city.

I was hoping to see some historic Hungarian jewelry and this delightful museum didn't disappoint me.

Included here are several photos of the jewelry that contained pearls. Solid gold jewelry was predominant at other museums in Budapest, but naturally, I was seeking jewelry decorated with pearls.

Three other reasons why I liked this museum is one...it was free, unlike most of the other many museums in Szentendre.

Another reason that impressed me with the Caprice museum is they picked up my husband and I downtown and brought us back for free.

The museum was located a ways out of town, so the free ride was much appreciated.

And, third, I could take photos! Now that will win my heart any day. At other museums in Budapest it is customary to charge for the privilege of taking photos and it's not only a token charge either.

I also found it annoying in other museums to constantly be asked to show my "photo ticket".

But....I was able to take photos inside the Budapest parliament building which houses the famous Hungarian crown of St. Stephen from the 11th century.

The Caprice Jewelry museum in Szentendre explains the Hungarian jewelry industry in a creative way through a video presentation and also with mannequins to portray St. Stephen (first king of Hungary), monks, workers etc.
