Expert review of Matthias Church
Matthias Church is as extravagant as any church you’re ever likely to see. Its Gothic spires are coated in patterned majolica tiles and the walls and columns inside are painted a range of rainbow colours. Strictly speaking, the church dates back to the 13th century, but the bulk of the building you see today was constructed at the end of the 19th century as one of the projects to celebrate the 1,000th anniversary of the founding of the country. Stained-glass windows by Romantic artists Károly Lotz and Bertalan Székely portray great moments of Hungarian history.
Entrance 700 forints (adult), 500 forints (concessions), 1,250 forints (family).
