The University Church

Name: The University Church
Category: Religious buildings
Location: 1053 Budapest, Papnövelde utca 7.


It is undoubtedly the best appreciated Baroque Church in the city. Originally it formed part of a convent of nuns from the order of Saint Paul, the only religious order founded in Hungary in the 13th Century and abolished in 1782. The outside is very stunning and a beautiful door carved in wood reveals an interior where the sumptuous decoration reveals some the frescos, some fake marbles, some gilt ornaments and wood carvings. The pulpit, made by the nuns, is splendid.
