Cave Church, Budapest
(3.2/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Explore the natural rock walls and niches filled with statues and altars at Cave Church, a grotto chapel that was originally home to Saint Istvan. The church was founded in 1926 when the Hungarian Paulite order of monks expanded the hermit's cave. In 1951, Communist secret police arrested an entire order of Pauline monks and the chapel was closed for nearly 40 years. Reopened by the Paulite order in 1989, after the fall of Communism, the church resumed services. The acoustics within the cave make music during services particularly moving and memorable. Many people still come to the church to worship, so remember to keep noise to a minimum as you walk from cavern to cavern.

  • Inspired by the sanctuary of Lourdes, the stone church was erected in 1926. Under communism, the Pauline monks were forced to abandon it, but were able to return in 1989.
