Going to Buda Castle and not appreciating this piece of architecture is inadmissible. It's one of the "must see" spots while on the castle. Make sure you have a guide or book with the history of the place, so you don't miss the little details.
This beautiful church is located within the Castle Hill walls next to the Fisherman's Bastion. It has been remodelled and renovated many times since it was first built in the mid 13th century. It was substantially changed during the 140 year plus period of Ottoman...More
Worth visiting both day and at night when it is lit up. The outside alone is worth the visit even if you aren't interested in going inside, but that too is quite lovely. Situated on the Buda side of the Danube adjacient to the Fisherman's...More
Matthias Church is where the royals were crowned making it more that another church in Europe. The interior is gorgeous but it was the tiled roof that I liked the most. You can see similar tiling at the Central Market downtown.
We were there with droves of people taking photos outside on fisherman’s bastion. The outside of the building is stunning and the roof tiles beautiful and so pretty with their multi colours. We were unsure whether the pay the £10 entry fee to look inside...More
Beautiful church...be sure to check out history before visiting....make sure you see the Loretta Chapel in rear of church....the miracle of the Virgin Mary statue is located here & quite fascinating.....
I have no words for how beautiful Matthias Church is!
From the outside you are blown away with the beauty of this building. No photos do it justice.
You pay 1500 HUF to go inside and it’s well worth it. Everything from the stained glass...More
It is next to the fishermen bastion, a a unmissable and unforgettable sight..so far had not got the chance to get inside but it's by far the best photographed church in Budapest.
The blend of colours and settings is unique.
A must while in Budapest
The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many
events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
