“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012 via mobile

I'm not religious but you must visit this beautiful church set inside a cave. Admission is only a couple of quid if that and you get headphones with a recording of it's history. It's amazing to see it even if you're not interested in it's history.

“Amazing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

The church is set into the hillside opposite Gellert Hotel and baths, and is very interesting and worth a visit. The church is beautiful. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

“Great for a quick visit after the Gellért Bath”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

The entrance fee was 500 only HUF per person including the audio guide. The guide was boring with a lot of religious talk and not so much about the church itself. The church is beutiful and worth a visit. The staff was very friendly and helpful though. A perfect 30 minute visit after the baths. If you have the energy walk uphill afterwards to the Gellért Citadella.

“Worth a quick visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

I loved the Cave Church itself, but was very disappointed with the audio tour. It was quite possible the most boring audio tour ever, and was predominately about religion (yes, I do understand it's a working church) and nothing about the history of the Cave Church. I walked out not knowing why there was a church in a cave. Seemed a missed opportunity to me, but it is definitely worth a look as it was pretty stunning.
