Overview
More
The late-Gothic St. Catherine church was built in 1443-91. Locals call it The Slovak Church because as early as in 1658 masses were led in Slovak language here. In a under-the-ground crypt city mayors and rich burgers were buried. Original gothic furnishing, a cross from the 15th century, late-Gothic Virgin Mary sculpture a stony baptismal font and an organ from the late 18th century survived ages.

We have lived in Hungary for four-and-a-half years now and seen some amazing churches (St Stephen's Basilica in Budapest being THE best) so St Catherine's did not 'amaze' but it is definitely worth a look.
