The exterior is striking in its whiteness, especially on a day full of sunshine.
|Matyas Church, Budapest|
|Southwestern corner view|
|Statue of saints outside the church|
For a small fee one can go inside and see the amazing mosaics, stained glass, and some exhibits about the history of the church and some works of art.
|Side altar on entering the church|
Many fine mosaics adorn the church.
|Mosaic of Magyar Saints|
Up a staircase (which Jacob loved) is a gallery for viewing the church and a small exhibit of art treasures from the history of the church and some fine statuary.
|Crown Jewels of Hungary (copies, that is)|
|Queen Elizabeth from the 1800s|
The only trick here is that after walking through the gallery, visitors go down another staircase and then are out on the street again. There was no way to backtrack! We were getting hungry, so we began our search for a good place to eat on the Castle Hill.
