This church located on top of Castle Hill is part of the beautiful skyline from the river or from Pest. It is the oldest church in Budapest dating back to the 1200s. The colorful Zsolnay tiles on the roof are handmade. This church was devastated...More

I only saw the church from the outside but that was enough to be stunned! It is very simple yet elegant and striking. The white with the brightly coloured roof is really cool. You must see this in Budapest.

This is a beautiful church, both inside and out close to the Fishermans Bastion in Budapest. Great for a bit of peace away from the crowds.

The Matthias church with its light colored stones and towering spires that sit next to the fisherman's bastion is like a walk in a fairyland (If you could only get rid of the hundreds of people who are also admiring the beauty just as you)!...More

We have seen it only from outside. It looks amazing, light rock walls and fantastic colorful roof, with sharp narrow bell tower. In sunny day it was so picturesque.

It really pays off to go inside! Wait in line, pay the price (it is quite cheap) and take the time to admire this beautiful church. Don’t forget to go upstairs at the 1st floor to see a small exhibiton. All those girls in love...More

Me and my husband walked around the castle district a lot and it’s a beautiful place. But at night the whole area changes and is magical. This church is glorious and I think one of my favourite buildings. It’s breath taking!

For me the best architecture in Budapest, no doubt! I absolutely loved the colourful tiled roof. The Church is in close proximity to the Fisherman's Bastion and both are a delight to visit. Definitely unmissable.

Beautiful overlook, great for photo op. Night time illumination makes the Cathedral glow, there are shops, restaurants, and monuments nearby.

Simply an amazing place to visit & combine with the Fisherman's Bastion. Make sure you get a guided tour to get the most from the visit. Some good Hungarian restaurants in the area. Public bus 16 will get you to the top from Pest.
