Tour Description

Explore the pearl of the Castle District, on the more traditional, medieval part of the city.

Matthias Church is one of the finest churches in Budapest, and the most unique churches in Europe. Located atop the Buda Castle hill, it has been serving the citizens of the Buda Castle Hill since 1015, its foundation by the first Hungarian king. Bored with churches? Not this time.

Full of surprises, mysteries and treasures, the church has a breathtaking interior with colours inspired by orientalism and romantic historicism. Its mystically exotic atmosphere paired with its Neo-Gothic features differentiates it from any other church.

Matthias Church is unlike many of the typical churches dating back to the Middle Ages. Be prepared to be surprised for its off the beaten track inner beauty.

”I wanted to say thank you SO much for the tours! I’ve been told on two separate occasions how good the tours were and that you were great and the boys were really engaged and interested in what you were telling them!
(I know this is no easy task with young boys!!)
So thank you again and well done! They said it really made the trip to Hungary!”
