As you approach the Inner City Parish Church you will be impressed with its massive size. The exterior of the church seems like it is in much need of restoration.

The original large gothic structure is the oldest building in Pest and was constructed during King Istvan's reign on the burial site of St. Gellert. The church was used as a mosque during reign of the Turk's. The original church was damaged during the "Great Fire" and was then later partly rebuilt in the Baroque style.

The interior of the church has some wonderful neo-classical elements along with gothic structures, a Turkish Paryer Niche and some wonderful frescos.
