The construction of this mosque was constructed in the late second half of the sixteenth century when the country was dominated by the Ottoman Empire. It was designed from the beginning for the mosque, but in 1766 the minaret of the mosque was removed by the Jesuits and is now used as a Catholic church. This monument in the historic city of Pécs is one of the finest examples of Turkish architecture in the whole of Hungary. You can still see the Quranic writings in the church in certain parts of the building, despite the change of mosque. The interior decoration of the church is also being visited. Tourists cannot enter the time when religious ceremonies are in progress.
The Hungarian Parliament building is considered one of the most lucid examples of Gothic revival architecture. It is located on the banks of the Danube River and is by far the largest building in Hungary and the tallest building in Budapest. Hundreds of conical minarets and the vault of the Dortadore have decorated the central dome of the building. This building is in the big square, which is often a scene of political gatherings. At night, it gets a glorious look for professional lighting. Meanwhile, parts of the building are open for public viewing.
The Gödöllő Palace was built in the 18th century as a home for one of the aristocratic families of Hungary. The palace was bought by the royal family after the death of the last owner of the palace in the mid-nineteenth century. Franz Josef I, the Austrian-Hungarian ruler, and his wife Elizabeth, known as Sisi, stayed in the palace for the summer. The palace fell sharply during the communist period, and some rooms were used as nursing homes. The reconstruction and restoration work of this building has now been completed and open to tourists.

The cemetery is also listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Due to the presence of rich mineral compounds in the highlands of the cave, you will see some interesting shapes of the rocks. If possible, visit the Slovak Caves of Slovak Karst, which extend beyond the borders of Hungary and the Slovak Republic.
Esztergom is one of Hungary’s largest buildings outside of Budapest. You can see the largest painting on the canvas of the world at this church.
