  Inner City Parish Church
by grkboiler

As you continue walking along the Danube, when you get to the Elizabeth Bridge and look left, you will see the Inner City Parish Church. This is the oldest building in Pest. It was built in the 14th century and was used as a mosque under Turkish rule. It was partly destroyed in a fire in 1723 and later rebuilt.

One small section of the church has a Turkish prayer niche in the direction of Mecca. It is one of the last remnants of Turkish occupation in Budapest, as the Habsburgs destroyed almost everything else. Also pay attention to the wooden pulpit.

The church is open daily.
