Visit to Esztergom Cathedral, Hungary

Last year I must have kneeled in at least forty churches during my tour of the six European countries. Each cathedral beautiful! Hungary churches were no exception. Thankfully we did not face the ‘no photography’ rule in most of the churches. Today I look at these pictures of mine and I am virtually transported off to these interiors.

Esztergom Cathedral

From Pannonhalma we drove to Esztergom. Esztergom was once the capital of Hungary. Steven, the first king of Hungary, was crowned here in 1000AD. The Basilica of Esztergom is famed to be the largest cathedral of Hungary. Esztergom cathedral ranks eighteenth in the list of large cathedrals in the world.

The interiors are gorgeous. The architectural details are stunning. The mosaic work and paintings on wall are so well maintained and looked quite fresh. I will be posting some more pictures of this cathedral in future blogposts. Hope you enjoy these.
