Gorgeous interior.

The entire interior is painted, with beautiful fresco's on the ceiling. Great stained glass, too. Well worth a visit.

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
