Szeged was almost completely destroyed by the flooding Tisza river in 1879. Therefore, the reconstructed city is all relatively new, including the Votive Church, which was only completed in 1930. Located on Dom square, the church was erected in the place of the older Domotor church, of which only a tower (Domotor Tower) survives. The ample square allows a full... More

The art in Hungary is so very different from Italy that it is difficult to not compare. Yet the distinctively Eastern European expression is captured gloriously in this Catholic Church.

You can see it from the motorway as Szeged is on the great plain. This remarkable building has a square in front that is home for the a famous summer festival.

Lovely large Cathoic Church on Dom Square. Consecrated in 1930 it is a mixture of Roman, Gothic, and eastern Byzantine architecture. Has a pipe organ with 9040 pipes, image of Madonna dressed in shepherd's felt cloak and slippers. This information I garnered from the web because there in NO information available in the church. Entrance is however free. worth taking... More

Remarkable Cathedral, dominating the surroundings. Not so ancient, but great fit to the adjacent square. Astonishing exterior in terms of colour composition of the materials used. No.1 thing to see in Szeged. Highest recommendations. Must see.

I love everything about Szeged. I am amazed so few people step outside of Budapest to see a really interesting town with Art Deco like touches. This church is HUGE inside, there is tons to see, you just have to be respectful as you go in not to disturb the worshippers.

The Votive Church and its neighboring university are used as a backdrop for many plays and other types of performances. A stage and bleachers are almost a permanent fixture. A great landmark and a wonderful area to walk in close proximity to the Tisza River. If you like architecture, you will love this church.
