This landmark shrine of the Roman Catholic Church right in the city centre is worth a visit. A beautifully restored/remodelled enterieur, a great piece of Hungarian baroque style.

My (5) fifth trip to the beautiful Country of Hungary from Australia but my (1) first visit to the delightful City of Miskolc.

Mindszenti Roman Catholic Church - the Church of Saint Peter and Paul the Apostles,circa 1724,built in Baroque style architecture is quite beautiful. The ceiling paintings and walls are exquisite in there quality, and the light that radiantly penetrated through the stained glass windows of the church, I felt motivated and a rekindling within me, a need of spiritual reflection.
Its a must visiting this delightful city,just a short deviation from Szechenyi utca/street.

My day trip by train to Miskolc,departing Keleti Railway Station, one of the (4) four major railway stations of the majestic City of Budapest, that predominantly services the eastern regions of Hungary and beyond, arriving at Miskolc Tiszai Railway Station some (2) two hours later was to the high standards I find is the operation of the Hungarian Railways.

There is much written in regards to historical buildings, churches and other in Miskolc but the Major Railway Station - Miskolc Tiszai,does not receive mention nor appreciation for its attractiveness and history that it rightly deserves.
This station, built in Renaissance Electric Style, word meaning,a variety of architectual styles, was built in 1901.
Ference Pfaff (1851-1913), the Hungarian-Austrian architect and academic was responsible for the design and construction of this railway station and building plus 20 other large railway stations and a number of smaller stations throughout his illustrious career, and was the principal architect engaged by the Hungarian Railways.
Miskolc Gamori, the other railway station of Miskolc, which is "out of service",was designed and built by Ference Pfaff and externally, its lines are to the principal style this architect captured in the building and construction of his railway stations.

Miskolc Tiszai Railway Station and building where restored in 1999 and further modernised in 2003.
The central hall of the station is extremly pleasant in its infrastructure with a large ticketing office running off it to one side and the adjacent side eatery and souvener shops.
The public toilets from a service and cleanliness standard,entry from the main train platform 1, are of extremely high standards.
On leaving the main entrance exit doors of Miskolc Tiszai Railway Station,immediately before you,is Kando Kalman Square.
The trams leaving from this terminus despatch you into the heart of Miskolc,within some (7) seven minutes and return you to this terminus point after your days exploration.Tickets can be purchased from a timber eatery bookshop and other that stands befor the square where you can purchase your all day tram ticket for a modest huff value.

The commencement of Szecheny utca/street should be your place of disembarking from the tram to commence your walking tour of this delightful City,which from the television monitors on the trams are very "user friendly" to understand and read.
Szecheny utca/street is approx. 2 kilometre's in distance,predominantly, a long straight mall in design with (2) two tram lines but beautiful period architectual buildings either side, that at times,you feel engulfed,by there close proximity to you,mainly due to there relatively low height level and the narrowness of Szecheny utca.

It could be likened to strolling/walking the Champs Elysees up and back but consideration should be given to use the tram and say hop on and off at (2) two points breaking the walking distance and not over doing your cardio vascular exercise.//
There are points you can divert off the Szecheny utca like to the Church of St.Peter and Paul the Apostles, and other delightful sites and places of interest but they are just a block or two which keeps you at all times in very close proximity to the main utca that i refer.
Szecheny utca/street is lined either side with shops of all discriptions plus restaurants cafes,banks etc.and is an extremly delightful walking experience.
I lunched at The Gastroworkshop which was excellent and highly recomend you try.
It is truely worth a visit to this beautiful city and i will return sooner than later.

Perhaps the most beautiful Roman Catholic shrine among the numerous in Miskolc, the main altar and paintings on the walls are outstanding.
