Sacred Sites and Religious Attractions in Budapest
Cave ChurchLocated on Gellert Hill overlooking Liberty Bridge is a unique grotto chapel of Hungarian Paulite monks. Closed during the Communist years and now reopened, it offers a peaceful respite from the city.

Inner City ChurchThis 14th-century parish church is the oldest building in Pest. Built on the site of an earlier church and a Roman fortress, it still contains a mihrab from the Turkish occupation.
Matthias ChurchOfficially named the Church of Our Lady, this famous landmark in Budapest's Castle District is better known as Matthias Church after a beloved 15th-century king.
Medieval SynagogueThis tiny Sephardic synagogue dating from 1364 was unexpectedly discovered in the 1960s during general excavation work in the Castle District.
St. Stephen's BasilicaNamed for Hungary's first Christian king, this is the largest church in Hungary. Inside, the Chapel of the Holy Right contains Hungary's most prized sacred relic: Stephen's right hand.
