The Szeged Cathedral, also known as the Votive Church, is the fourth largest building in Hungary and has the largest organs in Europe, equipped with 9,740 pipes. The interior of the church is decorated with numerous frescoes connecting sacred elements with the Hungarian tradition. Behind the altar there is a fresco depicting the Madonna wearing a Hungarian crown, and on the fresco above we will see the Virgin Mary in traditional Hungarian costume.
