This is a very beautiful church and the view from the bell tower is fantastic. The tiled roof is gorgeous and very unusual. Ask about the black tower, it's an interesting story and the staff will be glad to tell you all about it.

Beautiful church with exquisite tile roof and unique interior color scheme, unlike any we have seen in Europe (though we have of course not seen everything). Colors tend toward the tan and gold, with soft jewel tones as accents. Nice collection of art and artifacts...More

We climbed to the top and the view was incredible. However, the stairs are pretty steep, plentiful, and there is no handrail. Going down is actually a lot harder than going up! But the view was beautiful and well worth it!

I see from current reviews that Matthias gets horribly crowded but back in May it was serene. Although the interior doesn't live up to the wonderful exterior, it is well worth visiting and the exhibition of Sisi and Leopold, who were married in this church,...More

My review about Matthias church is exactly the same as for St. Stephens Basilica. I came here as a tourist, and the purpose was certainly not religion. A ticket of 1500 Florint (approx 4.5 Euro) which is cheap by European standards was not worth. Interiors...More

This church is well worth the entrance fee of 1500 Ft (discount for seniors). Lovely from the outside there is a beautifully decorated interior.

We visited here after dinner one night when the church and Fisherman's Bastion were all lit up and there were no crowds around. Really spectacular, and you have the views across the river to Parliament. Went back to Matthias Church the following morning to view...More
