It's understandable why many worship here. You don't get the crowds like the Bazilika but you do get the near same architecture and beauty.

Church of St. Laszlo, was built between 1891-1897. St.Laszio, ironically is the Patron Saint of Architecture, which this magnificently designed Church does not fail him, in his patronage. Designed by the masterful Hungarian architect Odon Lechner 1845-1914, this Church is built in a style, at that time in Hungary known as szecesszio, but in the rest of Europe,as Art Nouveau, Lechner adorned the roofing decoration of the majority of his buildings, using tile patterns inspired by old Hungarian and Turkic folk art. Zsolnay Porcelaine & Ceramics of Pecs in Hungary, there supurb work of tiles and ceramics can be viewed to-day on this "Holy Place", along with other Lechner designed buildings in Hungary and Slovakia, in particular the Blue Church. To get the "zest" of the magnificence of the roofing colours St. Laszlo has for us to admire, stand off the Church, cross the utca, look from its front, its side, allowing for the sunlight to work its magical if not angelic gifts to truely capture the sharing or picture that I paint of this inspiring piece of Lechner architecture. In Medieval times, churches were designed to be "read", to tell the Christian story, to tell those unable to read, the story. Standing to me in St.Laszio, its silence its purpose, told me a story / Sir Christopher Wren, the Great British Architect - St.Pauls Cathedral, in the City of London, his master-piece, when asked at the completion of his work, the type of memorial he would like statue or whatever replied - " I have no such need other than for those to stand in the Nave of this Cathedral and look around them. That is is my memorial." The prestine internal and external condition of St. Laszlo, its manicured surrouding gardens, is a credit to ALL reasponsible for its presentation and up-keep. The statue of Odon Lechner and model of his work "fittingly" or rightfully is located in these garden settings, in a place that he would constantly view, his work and those who to made it all happen. To visit, read the history of this Holy Place of Worship - St. Laszlo, is up-lifting and inspiring. The excellent public transport system of this beautiful City of Budapest and Country of Hungary, makes for easy access by tram 3 or 28 from Keleti Railway Station to visit St. Laszio, and you arrive,practically in direct front of the Church. Do enjoy your visit.

This beautiful church is in Kőbánya, the 10th district of Budapest. On a map (if yours is big enough!) it is quite a distance from the normal tourist haunts, but the excellent public transport in Budapest, together your smart phone, will get you there very easily. And it is well worth the trip! Built 1891-1897, Szent László shows some of Lechner's very best work. There is a fine statue of the Saint in the park outside the West entrance and a fine and well deserved statue of Lechner himself with a model of his creation, to one side. The tile work, both to the roof and to the pulpit, font and valious alters is outstanding. Whilst you are in Kőbánya, it is a stroll up the road to the Szent László Gimnázium, a big school also by Lechner, in a different style and from a later period (1914-15). It would be ridiculous to miss it!

A beautiful church surrounded with a very peaceful park. In front of church is a statue of Saint Laszlo. The building interior is in excellent condition, too. Beside religious purposes it's often a place for organ concerts.
