Matthias Church & Tours
The current Roman Catholic church was founded by King Bela IV.
When the Mongol invaders left Hungary in 1242 in complete ruins, King Bela IV decided to move the royal residence to Buda Castle.
Since the 16th century, Matthias Church (or as it was originally called The Church of Our Lady) has been the Coronation Church of Hungary.
Matthias Church is located in the heart of the Buda Castle district, where there are many other sights nearby that are well worth visiting. The Castle Hill is also great for walks and admiring the beautiful historic buildings and other riverside attractions of Budapest.
