"The Matthias Church" Mathias Church - Mátyás Templom Tip by ruubje

  Matthias Church
by ruubje

I have never seen a church like this one. I've seen the Notre Dame in Paris and the Sint Peter in Rome, but this one is really special. Although it's not famous because of it's highest tower or largest dome, the interior is so impressive, it's cool. Not one square centimeter is left unpainted. It's not just gold everywhere, like in Londen, but colours in shapes and strokes on every wall, pillar, and ceiling. It's just awesome, I think. Every tourist should visit this church on a hill for sure.
