Really beautiful church from the outside, especially its interesting colourful roof. The tickets for going inside are quite expensive (1800 HUF, taking into account what you get for that...) so we decided not to go there.

We bought a big bus tour ticket with free castle bus shuttle. Definitely worth it on a rainy day to see as much of the castle grounds as possible. We would never have found Matthias church without it. In the rain we just won’t have...More
