Another one of many churches/cathedrals that we have seen so far. Yes, the architecture is stunning - gothic, of medieval times - very similar as with the rest. Inside looks very familiar too. It becomes very predictable as we go on to see "new but...More

The exterior of this church is nice but I was particularly impressed by the interior, which is elaborately decorated in religious motifs and patterns that are unusual for European churches. Located in Budapest's old town, it is well worth a visit.

Paintings covering all the walls inside the church are very impressive. The acoustic for a string orchestra concert is fabulous.

A different style again. Even if you've already seen a lot of churches still go in. St Matthias will impress. If you do this before visiting hospital in the rock you can get 10% off your hospital ticket price.

District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious
