Explore Budapest & Hungary
Christianity has been at the heart of its people since the beginning of the Principality of Hungary by St. Stephen, the king and founder of the state in the late 10th, early 11th century. When the Ottomans conquered Budapest in 1541, they turned the churches into mosques. But even after 150 years of occupation, the Faith endured and many of them were converted back into churches, which today can be seen in their full glory in either gothic, romanesque, or baroque style. Watch our EWTN Travel videos to enjoy the city and see places of the Faith.
