Egyetemi Templom, Budapest

(4.5/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
At Egyetemi Templom, behold an extravagant 18th-century Baroque church built under the Pauline Order. Notice its distinctive brown-red facade and towers capped with copper spires that today are tinged green with exposure to the elements. Step inside to see the richly decorated interior, featuring statues and gold accents. Gaze upward toward the high ceilings, where frescoes depict the life of Mary. The church also features a Black Madonna, inspired by the Our Lady of Czestochowa church in Poland. Local students often flock here before their exams to pray to the Black Madonna.

  • unknown to many tourists and seldom visited, this is an absolutely beautiful baroque church. It feature a rather regular façade, but a superb and stunningly elaborated interior. Highly recommended.  more »
  • It is a Baroque church of the most beautiful in Budapest. The nuns of the Pauline order in the 13th century ornamentaram-on with hope such that lasts until today. The Pauline order was extinct but the Church is there to tell the story. Worth the visit.
