"Inside the Matthis church..." Mathias Church - Mátyás Templom Tip by belgianchocolate


If you made it to the castle district I would
for sure go inside the 'Matthis chruch'.
The 'Matyas-templon' isn't completely original
like I explained in previous tip. But the wall paintings
alone inside make it worth a visit.
When you first enter your eyes will need some
time to adjust. Those kind of wall decorations
I had never seen anywhere else.

Another reason to visit the chuch is the small
collection of sacral and religious art.
Some old paintings , a marble statue of sisi ,
that crown you will see appearing here and
there and postcards and so on.
This collection is exhibited on the choir
gallery. So it gives you another point of
vieuw on the interior of the church.

Maybe also interesting to know is the fact that
'Franz Liszt' 'Hungarian coronation mass'
was first performed here. Concerts still take
place here now and then.
