Every week, hundreds of thousands add to their bucket list the popular destination located on the two banks of the Danube, in the heart of Europe, in a world heritage setting, to see what a brilliant tourist spot Budapest is! There are few greater places in the world where you can experience the historic atmosphere of the city either by walking the cobbled streets or sitting on a nostalgia tram or on another wonder vehicle. The “Budapest experience” means intimacy and vibration at the same time: the dignified beauty and the bourgeois milieu of the Castle District rising above the city, the healing energies experienced in the imposing historical baths, the lively museum life, the buzzing shopping streets, the ever-renewing Jewish Quarter and the sophistication of the Michelin star restaurants.
The oldest church in Budapest is the Budapest Inner City Parish Church, officially the Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is partly based on the foundations of the Contra-Aquincum military fortress, which stood here from the 2nd century.
The memory of the 16th century is the mihrab, which reminds us that the church was used as a mosque during the Turkish occupation.
In the church you can find the relics of three Hungarian saints. The relic of King St. Ladislaus and St. Elizabeth of Hungary can be seen in the two Renaissance pastophoriums made in 1507 and the relic of Bishop St. Gerard in the altar.
You can take the elevator to the lookout tower of the church. You can visit two levels with a fantastic view of the Danube and the Buda side. In the Liszt Ferenc Tower, a memorial corner shows the relationship between the church and the composer Ferenc Liszt.
