Matthias church (The church of our Lady)

Szentháromság tér 2, Budapest

This famous landmark, located in Castle District, is known as Matthias Church after the much-loved 15th-century Renaissance king who contributed the towers and was married here. Most of the exterior was added around 1896 in a Gothic style. The interior is decorated with works by two outstanding 19th-century Hungarian painters, Károly Lotz and Bertalan Székely. The wall left of the entrance represents the Renaissance, while the wall across from the entrance has Eastern motifs to represent Ottoman rule. On the left side of the church is the tomb of St. Imre, son of King St. Istvan and heir to the throne.

The exterior of the church alone was worth the visit whcih is part of a walk throught the castle district.The interior was so beautifully decorated and the ceilings were a marvel to look at. I couldn't believe that the walls were all hand painted
