The Basilica, Eger

4.4
#2 of 10 in Historic Sites in Heves County
Admire the massive structure, ornate details, and folk-art frescoes of The Basilica, a 19th-century Classicist church recognizable by its hulking size and yellow color. The elaborate exterior features several statues, tall columns, two sanctuary towers, and a magnificent dome. Step inside to see the even more ornate interior, where high ceilings lead to colorful frescoes by folk artist István Takács. If you're lucky, you'll be treated to the sounds of its dramatic organ being played. Plan your The Basilica visit and explore what else you can see and do in Eger using our Eger trip builder .

  • Erdemes to see him, but also only in conscientious reasons, "if I am in Eger" with a motto. But unfortunately for me, the most beautiful is the Uton-utfelen bushing, and the Adomanygyujto Kosarka, where the O's words can be "reciprocated". The lovely itself, but not a program of the same kind.

  • It is worth to fall back from Budapest. The building's size and size of the paintings are impressive. Admission is free (vault and Cryts no longer).
