Mátyás-templom

The Church of Our Lady, better known as Matthias Church (Mátyás-templom) looks back on an exceptionally long history and is the second best known church of Budapest after St. Stephen’s Basilica. It was built in 1015, shortly after the country’s conversion to the Christian faith. It was rebuilt in gothic style in the 14th century, and was yet again renewed in the 19th century in harmony with the designs by Frigyes Schulek. Thanks to its latest reconstruction between 2006-2013, it now stands in its old glory again. The building is a great example of Central-European gothic style. Its facade is adorned with rich ornamentation, sculptures and reliefs. The interior is dominated by wood, gold and painted walls. Tourists must buy a ticket to enter.
