I've visited Szeged many times before and, of course, seen the Dom (Cathedral of Our Lady) many times, it dominates the city skyline from miles around. To be honest, it isn't the prettiest Cathedral on the outside being built of brick. However, I was totally amazed when I finally took a visit inside the Cathedral; stunningly decorated and painted walls... More

I made a point of visiting this church for personal reason. I was baptized there many, many, many years ago. It has two impressive spires which can be seen just about everywhere in the downtown area. It became my guiding light as I walked around the riverfront. . It is not as old as many other churches I've seen in... More

What a beautiful building in the centre of Szeged. Well worth a visit particularly in the evening as the lighting of the features really highlight the surrounding area.

The Votive Church in Szeged is one of the main attractions of the town. It's placed on one end of a large square, where they have summer theater events every year (you should visit a performance is you have a chance). The church itself is not an old one, but it has an atmosphere to it. The walls are not... More

The church with its impressive size, interesting brick architecture and colourfully painted interior is a must if you are in Szeged. The large square in front of it with the colonnades offers a nice view. The interior paintings are influenced by Byzantine style, and the Virgin Mary in traditional local dress painted on the ceiling above the altar is also... More

You will find many strange things in this church! #1: there are swastikas and other Hindu symbols adorning the walls #2: there are clearly drawn hexagrams on the crowns of saints. These are always situated directly across from saints wearing the cross on their crown. #3: The church is large and has the third largest organ in Europe but the... More
