Budapest -- The Church of Our Lady in the Buda Castle

Matthias Church,

aka The Church of our Lady in the Buda Castle is amazing.

Parts of it date back 500 years.

There is an incredible amount of handwork in the church - but it's not all gold and gilt. It's more intimate than imposing. (It's Protestant)

The entire interior of the church is painted with elaborate designs.

The old floor of the Church (below) helps create the environment of calm that pervades the place. (It also makes a great Windows desktop background.)
