This little church was so understated on the outside but was rich in history and well worth the visit. The audio guide was included, it was good for a basic overview and you could tell that they were really proud of the church.

It's not well signposted but worth the effort to find it Audio guide in English was very informative but a couple of the sections didn't work. Lovely and cool around 20 all year round. Small shop. Loos were clean. Small area for private prayer. Very...More

Interesting place - sort of the last holdout for the Pauline order. Just reopened in 1989. Very inexpensive and entry price includes audio guide. While strolling through the caves and listening to the audioguide probably takes 15 minutes tops, it is worth a look if...More

Interested in religion, I was spoilt by places of worship to visit in Budapest. This one stood out as it had such a serene vibe about it. It's cheap to look around, and its a good pit-stop before going to Gellert Hill!

Amazing historical church. Wish it was less touristy but did enjoy being able to view it and learn the history behind the ancient church. A definite must see!

I thought this would be really cool inside but it wasn't. Small nooks and crannies with chairs and an Alter. Some neat wood carvings. But I won't go back or recommend it to friends who visit. It was cool temperature wise inside. So it was...More

The history of this church is amazing- it's a small church inlaid into the rock - it's not got all the glitz of the bigger churches but it's the one that has outlasted many attempts to close it and it's definitely the one that feels...More

Absolutely amazing place in the center of the city (very close to green bridge). Good to sit and contemplate in silence. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Gellert Hill
If you want to treat your camera to some amazing
scenery, Gellért Hill is a must on your itinerary. A
funicular journey from the Chain Bridge along the
hillsides provides a fast connection between Buda and
Pest, hoisting visitors to panoramic vistas. Once on
top of the hill, you’ll find the Citadel dominate the
landscape with its imposing 19th century construction,
a site that’s hard to keep your eyes on without being
