"A Landmark Church" Mathias Church - Mátyás Templom Tip by Jetgirly
Mathias Church - Mátyás Templom, Budapest: 110 reviews and 228 photos
Matthias Church (Mátyás-templom) is a landmark on Budapest's Castle Hill. While the original church was built in the eleventh century in Romanesque style, the late Gothic church on the site today was built in the late 1300s and then underwent massive restorations in the 1800s. Even today parts of the church remain under construction. As Buda changed hands so did the church, serving as a mosque in the sixteenth century and a church-museum today (the Ecclesiastical Art Museum starts in the crypt). To visit the church as a tourist you must purchase a ticket, though those wishing to pray may enter the chapel free of charge. Audio guides are also available. It's a church... be respectful.
