Favorite thing: The Fő street is the richest street in churches in Budapest: You find here 5 churches. The saint Flórián chapel was built by a rich bakerman, Antal Christ between 1750 and 1753. Until 1920 it was a catholic church but than the greek catholic church recieved it. In 1937 the church, like the neighbourhood was elevated by 1 metre to avoid future inundations. The internals are beautiful!
You find this church next to the Király thermal bath.
