The Mathias Church, (Mátyás-templom), owes his name to this great Hungarian king of the Renaissance. It increases the preceding Gothic church established on this site, and celebrated its weddings there twice. There was a church on this site since the reign of Béla IV (1235-1270), but what one sees today is the masterly rebuilding due to Schulek, which inspired by the plans of the 13th century, but by adding some embellishments to it, in particular, the arrow of the bell-tower.
