St. Matthias Church Interiors (Budapest)

The interior of Mathias Church is unique. It is very colorful; this colorful character of the church is due to the beautiful cultural interchange of East and West. The various geometric and floral ornaments are a reminder of the Mosque that existed here before. The unique interiors were created at the end of nineteenth century, by Bertalian Szekely a leading painter of his times.
