Hungarian National Museum

Budapest, Múzeum krt. 14-16, 1088 Hungary

The Hungarian National Museum, also known as the Magyar Nemzeti Muzeum, was founded more than 200 years ago. Over the years it has been collecting a number of significant historical Hungarian finds ranging from art to archaeology. Collections include also a number of objects coming from Transylvania and other areas outside the country’s borders.

The museum collection became more tangible in 1802 when Count Szechenyi donated his private collection to the State. The collection included 20 thousand items: 11,884 printings, 1156 manuscripts, 142 books as well as coins and other archeological evidences.

In 1847, 45 years after the donation, the Museum was moved from the St Paul monastery of Pest to its current location. Its construction works started in 1837.

The Hungarian National Museum hosts 7 permanent exhibitions; the museum garden represents another exhibition area around the Museum. The Museum includes also the Hungarian National Library.

The Inner-City Parish Church

Budapest, Március 15. tér, 1056 Hungary

The inner-city Parish Church in Budapest – in Hungarian Belvárosi Plébániatemplom – is a religious site located in the Pest district, the Eastern area of the city.

During the Turkish invasion of the 14th century, this church was converted into a mosque. In 1723 a great fire destroyed the building, which was rebuilt in Baroque style by the architect György Pauer. The reconstruction works began in 1725 and ended about 15 years later. In 1808 Fülöp Ungradt added a beautiful wooden carved Neo-Gothic pulp and a Gothic chapel characterized by perforated windows.

Inside the Inner-City Parish Church it is still possible to admire some Neo-Classical elements by János Hild, as well as a collection of works from the XXth century.

Fragments of the Medieval church figure in the walls located in the south side of the tower; a small portion of the wall is still visible in the lower side of the facade.

The main portal of the Inner-City Parish Church is characterized by a Baroque style and it is decorated with a golden sculpture of the holy trinity. Traces of baroque and Neo-Gothic style are visible inside the church. The original altar was demolished during Second World Was and it was rebuilt in 1948 by Károly Antal and Pál Molnár.

Among the most important elements of the church, there is an Italian fresco from the XVth century representing the crucifixion of Jesus, the symbol of Pest dating back to 1507, and some ruins dating back to the Ottoman reign.
