The architect Georg Molnar designed this new structure free of charge, earning him a bust inside. Snap photos of this slender yellow-brick structure, with its multicolored ceramic roof and large gilded cross. Inside, notice the altar made of fine wood from the Austrian Alps and look up to see intricate gothic arches.

  • The main Catholic church in the city. Built in Neo-Gothic style. I couldn't go inside, but the tower is visible from almost the entire city.
