The Church of Saint George

Budapest, Hungary


Anastasia Chukovskaya

Budapest is an amazing European city that was formed under the influence of many cultures. Apart from Austrian legacy, you will also find signs of Jewish, Turkish, Gypsy and Serbian impact.

During the last six centuries, the city's history has been closely associated with Serbs. In the 15th century, they fled from Turks just to face the conflict in Kosovo five hundred years after. There was time when they had a whole district in Buda which unfortunately has not been preserved. In Pesta, you may, however, walk a Serbian street Szerb utca and see several Orthodox churches. One of them is a baroque Church of Saint George built between 1695 and 1697. It is in a walking distance from a noisy trade street Vaci, but here you will find absolute silence and quietude.
