Matthias Church Budapest
Matthias Church Budapest is located right in front of the Fisherman’s Bastion in the heart of Buda’s Castle District in Budapest. Matthias Church Budapest is a structure with extremely rich history dating all the way back to the year 1015. Although it was said to be built in Romanesque style during that particular year, there are no archaeological remains that exist still today.
That first church on sight was founded by Saint Stephen, who was the King of Hungary at the time but then was later destroyed in the year 1241 by the Mongols. It wasn’t until the latter half of the 13th century, when the construction of the current building began. Although originally named after the Virgin Mary (as stated above), it was later named after King Matthias in the 19th century; he was the same one that ordered there to be a complete transformation of its original southern tower.
Several coronations have taken place within the church and it serves today as an extremely popular attraction to all those who visit the wonderful city of Budapest. Getting the opportunity to wander inside Matthias Church will give you the chance to get an up close and personal look at the exquisite detail that was put into every single inch of it. From paintings and drawings to huge towers and immaculate entrances, Matthias Church is nothing short of extraordinary and an absolute must see while in Budapest.
