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!

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.

This church is a small one, just the other side of the main entrance of Gellert Spa. On weekdays it costs HUF 600 to enter. Worth visiting!

The church was worth the small fee to enter. Very clever use of space to build a church. Audio guide explained the history of the church.

This is a great stop for a short tour. The whole thing (listening to the audio guide available in multiple languages) took about 45 minutes. It was beautiful, informative and perfect for a respite from the traffic and sounds of a large city like Budapest....More

I assumed it was a church built onto the rock, not into the rock. So was really pleased when we realised we could actually go in. The audio guide was really helpful. Such a peaceful place. Worth a visit if you're interested in religion/religious buildings.

Reopened in 1990 after being in disrepair since the 1950s, this "church in the rocks" is worthwhile to visit. It is contemplative and with English audio. But the additional reward for trekking up here is a great photo-op.

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
