Budapest, Hungary is well known and beloved for its architecture and cultural heritage. Visitors may find themselves travelling several hundred years back in time standing on a single street corner or visiting one of Hungary’s most admired sites. In Hungary you can find roman ruins, gothic churches, hundred years old houses and modern buildings next to each other.
Within the often changing borders of Hungary during its history, fine arts developed in strong interaction with European art, and although they always reflected European tendencies, they retained a strong character of their own.
Beside the Hungarian architecture many foreign culture and religion represents itself throughout the country.
Some burgher houses in the Castle District and parts of the Buda Palace and Mátyás Church bear the gothic hallmark. Several parish churches have incorporated Gothic remains and the Calvinist church in Nyírbátor to the east is one of the largest in the region. The few remaining medieval castles, including those in Diósgyor and Siklós, all have Gothic elements
