unknown to many tourists and seldom visited, this is an absolutely beautiful baroque church. It feature a rather regular façade, but a superb and stunningly elaborated interior. Highly recommended.

We saw so many great churches on our trip but this relatively small baroque style church was out standing. Beautiful marble, lots of light, wonderful proportions. We walked in on a wedding in process which made it ever more special.

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention

When I was there two months ago, the opening hours are from 7:00-19:00 every day. Not sure why it is not open now.
