The interiors of the Matthias church are marvellous, even if the complete renovation -wich by the way has already begun outside, with the towers and the facades- is inevitable. Every single squaremetre is beautifully ornated with figurative and non figurative adornments (for example leafs, flowers, geometric forms...ecc...). The weakest point of the church is the illumination wich will be completely changed: it`s difficult to appreciate these ornaments, because the church is quite dark and the lights are dazzling. To be noticed the beautiful banners of the 1848-49 Revolution and Independence war wich can be foung on both side of the main nave, on the pillars of the side naves.
