    We went to a recital one evening which was lovely. The area around the basilica has lots of cafes and restaurants.

    Very much worth a visit, especially on the way to the Citadel. It is the many statues and other art pieces that are most interesting about the cave. The audio guide is really great for understanding the art, other artifacts, Hungary's history and the Catholic faith within the country.

    We brought Budapest cards so we could access most visitors sights. The stairs do not have handrails and die to their age are not even. When you get around half way up there is a spiral staircase for you to walk up to the top, this has had rails either side. There are no emergency phone or way of getting help if you get it to trouble. 172 steps to the top then of course the same down!

    We went to a concert of light classical music, performed by 6 string-instrument musicians in this beautiful church. It is hard to envisage a more befitting place to enjoy classical music than the interior of this church. It is marvelously decorated and stands apart even when compared to more renowned churches. For a mere 7000 HUF you enjoy a potpourri of Mozart's "A little night music, Shubert's Ave Maria, and Albinoni's adagio, to list a few. The concert lasts about an hour and is worth every penny, or a HUF in this case...

    Located within Rozsak tere, “Square of Roses”, named after the beautiful rose garden surrounding this architecturally beautiful, catholic church built in the neo-gothic style, we especially like the spire, that are an impressive 76 meters tall, we must admit this is not something you expect to see in this quite neighbourhood.

    In Budapest there are a lot of churches, however this is particularly interesting since it is erected on the spot where from the early 1000 there was church standing.
    So it has seen history passing - being a catholic church most of the time but also serving as a mosque during the Ottoman occupation of Hungary.
    In this church the patron saint of Budapest - St. Gellert (or Gerhard in german if you like) was buried in this church (if you go with a guide it will be very interesting to learn about this).
    The architectural styles are mixed - since through the centuries it was refurbished and modified but you can recognize gothic and baroque styles for sure. So those of you who are into architecture will find it very interesting.
    From the perspective of visiting when I've been there a big sign was up - open 0-24 however strangely it was closed ... hence the not perfect score on the review ... otherwise for sure its a piece of the history of Budapest that is worth visiting.

    Calvinist Church (a.k.a Szilágyi Dezső Square Reformed Church) is a Protestant church in Szilágyi Dezső Square near the west bank of the Danube. It was built by Samuel Pecz from 1894 to 1896 in a neo-Gothic style of architecture. The building is graceful, with brick walls and rib vaults, flanked by a slender 62m belfry. The gabled roof incorporates Zsolnay tiles (a Hungarian manufacturer of colorful, durable ceramics) in brown, yellow and green. The church interior is simple, with Gothic arches, ribbed vaults and a rose window. An unusual design has twin apses forming a pentagonal crossing with a circular alter in the center. The pulpit is nicely carved, and there is an organ in a rear gallery above the nave. The church is open during the day with no entry fee, although a donation is gratefully accepted.

    We found this church by accident - it is not on the tourist route but is well worth going into. It is stunning inside and radiates peace and tranquility. Very beautiful.

    This large elegant church is located just across the street that we stayed in whilst visiting Budapest. Consequently, we had the opportunity to view its fine external architecture which is dominated by twin bell towers, every day.
    One of those days was a Sunday and it was not surprising that the church appeared to attract a large number of worshipers to its various services on that day. We did not attend a service but we managed to have a quick glimpse inside in between two of the services.
    The interior decoration and furnishings of the large church are certainly detailed and impressive. The numerous rows of wooden pews indicated that the church can certainly cater for a large congregation.
    This church is certainly not a “must-see” attraction in Budapest but it is worth a quick viewing if you happen to be in the vicinity!

    Located within the grounds of the beautiful, Vajdahunyad Castle, this relatively small church takes its name from an Abbey in Western Hungary, as the facade is a copy of that church, with its intricate, layered portal, we are happy it is here, being in fitting surrounds.

    We walked past the church going to the central market and returned, as we remembered just how beautiful it is.
    The ol' lady hasn't lost her charm.
