Favorite thing: This is one of the best known churches in Budapest. you find it on the Szilágyi Dezső square right on the bank of the Danube, almost in front of the Parliament building. Impossible to miss it with it`s its caracteristic shape and rooftop. It was built in neo-gothic-secessionist style among 1892 and 1896 according to Samu Petz`s plans, thanks to the contribution of the Capitol and the protestants of Budapest.

The tower wich looks like a minareth is 65 metres tall and it never shades the church itself. The rooftop is covered by Zsolnay pyrogranit cheramics.

Address: Chain Bridge
