The architectural hotspot where King Matthias' wedding was held is situated close to Fisherman's bastion. Entry to the church is ticketed and costs FT1500 per person. Expect queues to buy the tickets and high temperatures in the vicinity.

Went to a concert at this church which is located on castle Hill on the Buda side of the Danube River. The church is very very beautiful. The music we heard was also very very nice. This is a must when you visit Budapest!

District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious
and intricate past, Buda has some of the most
outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable
natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube.
Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a
glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian
