Churches in Budapest

Inner City Franciscan Church

Inner City Franciscan ChurchThe Franciscan Church was originally built in the 13th century. Since then, the church was destroyed by the Turks during the invasion of Hungary, but the Franciscans rebuilt it. After that the Turks didn’t destroy it anymore, but they used the church as a mosque. The church was renovated again in the 18th century, in Baroque style, and gained the final form we can see it today.

Inner City Parish Church

The Parish Church is the oldest building in Pest. First it was built in the 12th century, in Roman style. Like a lot of churches in Hungary, this was also partly destroyed by the tartars, and after that used by the Turks as a mosque. After a large fire it was rebuilt in the 18th century in Baroque style, with a beautiful Neo-Classical interior.

Matthias Church

Matthias churchThe church is named after the great Hungarian king, Matthias Corvinus. It was built in the 14th century, but at the time of the Turkish occupancy it was used as a mosque and they destroyed the frescoes and cleared away the furniture of the church. At this time the church was the location of a Mary-wonder, because Virgin Mary showed up before the praying Muslims. After the Turkish secession the originally Gothic building was renovated in Baroque style and became its actual, beautiful look in the 19th century.
