Matthias Church

Budapest, Hungary
5 / 5
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.

Fairly small versus the large cathedrals found in Germany and France, but absolutely magnificent inside. Floor to ceiling is covered in paintings, stained glass, and stone carvings going back to the 1200s. Absolutely pay the ~$6 USD to go in.


I was there two weeks ago, and I had to go back later in the week. This is a breathtakingly beautiful church! I was so moved and all I can say is, if you’re anywhere near Budapest, this is well worth the visit!


Very beautiful place with an interesting architect. There is a cafe on the top of castle and there is a wonderful view of the whole city.


The view is beautiful even at night. I enjoyed the piano performance inside of church. We can see Danube river and the parliament through this place.
