Matthias Church

Budapest, Hungary
4.9 / 103
Officially, the temple bears the name of the Virgin Mary, but residents of the capital name it in honor of the Hungarian king Matthias Corvinus. For Budapest, the architecture of the temple is quite unusual, since Gothic elements prevail in it. The church regularly hosts musical evenings where you can listen to the organ, violin, choral singing. The first church on the site of the modern temple appeared in the XI century at the behest of Prince Istvan.
Address:Budapest, Szentháromság tér 2

Beautiful church, incredibly detailed. Was hard to find a brick that wasn't decorated. Easily worth it for me. Also has a small museum inside, which takes you up a floor for an even better view.
Magnificent church with great architectural interest. However! It is a church!! Why need to pay for a ticket to enter?? Please also carefull in specific stairs which are quite narrow - mainly for elder people
