Lovely Church was under construction at the time I saw it.

I love everything about Szeged. I am amazed so few people step outside of Budapest to see a really interesting town with Art Deco like touches. This church is HUGE inside, there... read more

I love everything about Szeged. I am amazed so few people step outside of Budapest to see a really interesting town with Art Deco like touches. This church is HUGE inside, there is tons to see, you just have to be respectful as you go in not to disturb the worshippers.

The Votive Church and its neighboring university are used as a backdrop for many plays and other types of performances. A stage and bleachers are almost a permanent fixture. A great landmark and a wonderful area to walk in close proximity to the Tisza River. If you like architecture, you will love this church.

Interior actually closed due to renovation. Outside it looks mighty and dominates the whole quarter.

Like other reviews construction is taken place at the moment but don't let that distract you from visiting more impressive from the inside photos can be taken but will look great once construction work is completed.

This was really an impressive architecture, but it was undergoing major reconstruction both outside and inside. If you are making a trip to Szeged for this, you might feel a little disappointed because of the construction (but Szeged is still a beautiful place). But if you are in Szeged anyway, don't miss it. The interior was very nice too (whatever... More

At present doing huge really deep excavations . Inside a tranquil retreat , lovely paintings on the wall . What fascinated me was the medieval looking contraption, used to reach the high ceilings, wooden with wheel and a scary looking extendable ladder ,,, not for the feint hearted.

Amazing construction in the center of Szeged. Worth a visit to check the church and the surroundings.

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.
