Came to this church on the way walking up to the Fisherman's Bastion. Nice looking exterior with richly colored tiles on its roof. The inside is very different from any other church I have seen. Its layout is pentagonal shape with a round marble table...More

Nice plain brick red church on the Buda side of the river Danube, it was built in 1896 in the Neo-gothic style, its 180-foot Bell tower can be seen for miles. We loved the colourful Zsolnay tiles in shades of autumn, green yellow and brown...More

A clearly visible landmark, an architectural jewel and a Protestant community with a strong outreach program all come together in this very visible church. Built of bright red brick, this Neo-Gothic structure was completed in 1896. The roof, as that of the St. Matyas church...More

This unique and beautiful church is located on the Buda part of town, just next to the Danube river. It's simple, yet elaborated, interiors resemble ones of a synagogue.

You'll find this pretty red-brick church while walking along the Danube on the Buda side of town. It's a picturesque neo-gothic building that's worth stopping by for a quick while. The gothic details of the church are particularly picturesque as is its multi color tiled...More
