Owner description: Used over the centuries as a coronation church for the Hungarian kings, the slender and graceful architecture of this beautiful church dominates the main square of the Castle area.

IT's just so well placed right next to the Fisherman's bastion and the castle that you shouldn't miss it. Inside's good as well, but honestly - nothing extra, except if you're this BIG church freak... In early 2013 it was still under some renovation on the inside, not sure you can enter...

This church is gorgeous!!! It is a must see, especially right as it starts to get dark at dusk. No need to go inside while the restoration is going on!

Big restoration going on which made going to this church a huge disappointment. It was interesting to see the actual restoration process and examples of what had been done already but it was difficult to get a picture, impression of the church in all it's glory since there was scaffolding everywhere.

It is one extraordinary churches and well worth seeing but while the restoration is fully going on.

While the exterior of this church is worth to see, the attraction I am writing about is the part where you have to pay to see the interior. As of March 2013, the interior part of the building is undergoing major renovations that seem will take months if not years to finish. 80% of the interior of the church is scaffolds and wooden planks!! But they still are selling tickets (4-5 euros) to go inside the church and do not tell about the renovations when you buy the ticket! I felt completely robbed to have paid to see scaffolds and not have been told about it. Of course its not about the price as it is pretty cheap in euros as are all attractions in Hungary, but its just the wrong thing to do. Ive never written such a harsh review but this one is totally deserved.
