Beautiful scenery
Aug 2020 • Family
This church is beautiful and located near the grape garden and wine cellars. Amazing place to visit, would suggest as some not-food-orientated fun. (Just in case there's plenty of beautiful panoramic restaurants nearby)

A little gem located on the side of the valley - well worth a visit
Sep 2019
I wanted something to do in the evening so I walked from my hotel to this check - about 30 min walk and I was pleasantly surprised - it was very easy to find and with the sunseting, it was a very nice attraction to visit. Such a small church but such a beatufil location - well worth the visit and some quite time, just as the sun was setting.

A must see area of Heviz. Lots of Hungarian history of years gone by. Lovely gardens and historic statues.

History itself
Sep 2017 • Solo
It's stood on a hill surrounded by wineries and nowadays restaurants but still its surrounding is quiet.

Although I t does not take a long to see the church, one can feel the history by looking inside out the church and think Mg of the past.

It's hard to believe that this oldest church in Hungary survived for centuries and it keeps its form even now.

I enjoyed the silence all by myself.

Recalling the atmosphere of the early times of introduction Christianity in Hungary
Jul 2017

This small church is recalling the atmosphere of the early time of introduction Christianity in Hungary. Do not expect a spectacular interior here, just the simplicity and beauty of a simple small village church, which has survived many centuries of tough history.

Very quaint church

Wonderful views from the church. Very old and atmospheric place to visit. Well worth the walk from Heviz to see the church then stop for a drink in one of the many wineries.

Little old church is perching on the top of the hill.
Mar 2016 • Couples
This nearly 700 years old church is one of the three survivors from Árpád period. Surrounded by a little cemetery it is charming and peaceful. Don’t expect something like the Dome of Milan or the Sagrada Familia, but this tiny church has its own value.
The very clear, severe forms, the austere church interior, all of them make it worthy for a visit. Planted onto a beautiful vineyard, it was not necessary to go far even for the communion wine.

If you are interested in historical churches, this must be one to visit. You have to see it to believe it!

Tiny Arpad 14th cent church
Nov 2015 • Solo
This is one of 3 Arpad churches in the Balaton area and the first mention of the church was in the 13th cent but the current building dates from 1341. There are pews which would seat a dozen people plus the altar.

nice scenery

You should visit this church when you're in Hévíz. It's built on a hill, there is a tiny cemetery next to it and so many great restaurants and vineyards around.
