This is a small orthodox church. It is kind of dark to see things clearly. It is free to enter but pictures are not allowed. Unless you are an avid church lover, skip it.

This beautiful little church was originally Greek Orthodox and apparently is now the Russian Orthodox cathedral. It’s probably the most beautiful little place of worship in Budapest if one considers its size. The Bazillica is impressive and it’s grand, but imposing rather than beautiful. One...More

Hungary is rather catholic, but there are some Orthodox churches. The most beautyful is in the city of Budapest, a short walk from the Danube, from the Elisabeth Bridge. Lookat the amazing altar screen!

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
