Cave Chapel - Sziklakapolna, Budapest: 30 reviews and 79 photos

Buda has a funny monastry. Build in a cave, the monastry is a prefect place for monks to be in the middle of the city and at the same time they can hide from all the worldly things.

I didn't particularly like the interior design, but maybe that's just my taste. But I liked the solution of making a monastry in a mountain though. I mean, in Hungary there is also no desert where you can live a monastic life.

Address: Szent Gellert ter
Directions: Above St. Gellert Square, in Gellert Hill. Buses #7, 7A, 86, Teteny-busz or trams 18, 19, 41, 47, 49, 118 to Szent Gellert ter stop.
