Where Matthias Church, Budapest

Discovering Matthias Church. Europe, with all its history, have some of the most beautiful churches ever.  Independent of religion, we think everyone should take some time to visit them because of all art work combined inside of their wonderful constructions.

A little history

If you are still not excited to visit all of them, then at least a moment to visit Matthias Church in Budapest, Hungary! This is a gorgeous Gothic style church which was originally named Virgin Mary during 13th century.  It was later named after King Matthias in the 19th century.  According to Wikipedia, the King ordered the transformation of its original southern tower. Additionally, it has some of the most beautiful colors inside in the Gothic style and all art work as paintings, sculptural decorations and statues.  Additionally, outside the structure is also phenomenal with an amazing roof top and the Holy Trinity Column built in 1713.

Make sure you have time to visit every nook and cranny.  You will need it, because the details are spectacular across the different rooms and levels. All these colours and Holy art can really inspire us!

Worth every penny !

There is a small entrance fee, we paid $ 7.11 cad to enter.   It may seem like a lot, but have a look at our pictures and those of you will know that it won’t disappoint.   The tickets can be purchased online, which includes the tower or guided tours.  We decided on a self guided tour to get a little more freedom and visit at our leisure. Alternatively, it could be nice with a guide to better understand the history behind each Holy art inside.  You be the judge ! 😉
