Saint Michael's is a small roman catholic church, were the Sunday mass is in Latin and quite easy to miss if you are not paying attention. There has always been a religious building here since 1300, although it has been destroyed and rebuilt many times....More

Vaci Street is one of the most popular shopping streets in Budapest. Songs sing about it, the literary works often recalling it, but there is little talk about St. Michael's Church which offers one of the most beautiful interiors. It's true that people usually go...More

There has been a Catholic church on the present location since the 1300s, but the present building was completed only in 1765, after the occupying Ottoman Turks destroyed the previous church. Originally a Dominican order church, it was transferred to the Paulist order in 1785,...More

You can't miss this building on Vaci St, the pedestrian shopping street, because on the outside (see pics) the statues are wonderful and get your attention but the building looks unassuming, like it's nothing inside and boy is that a big secret! Inside (see pics)...More

A historic church on a busy pedestrian street where they have organ concerts in the evening. A great place to stop in on a busy afternoon to rest and quietly regain energy while reflecting in the religious surroundings.

It's worth taking a look inside. Beautiful church. They also have a good selection of concerts there with interesting programmes. It's in a pedestrian zone with touristy shops on the way to the market.
