Churches of Eastern Europe: Photo essay of these stunningly detailed places of worship

Eastern Europe is one of our favourite regions in the world. There is just so much to see and do from lush mountains, off the beaten track towns and stunning city centres. One of he things we find fascinating about it is its churches…and as atheists that must mean they are pretty special! We are used to the drab and plain interiors of the Churches of Britain we were forced to endure growing up! So once we began to explore Eastern Europe and discovered its highly decorative and detailed churches we couldn’t believe the beauty we found before us! Here are some of the best from the countries we have visited!

In Hungary again they step up the decorative elements of their churches a notch, even the tiling on the roof is amazingly intricate. Budapest also has churches of different styles which makes visiting them even more interesting.

Austria (as part of Austro-Hungary):

We have decided to include Austria in this post as its history is so closely tied with that of Hungary’s and we found the churches over there to be of a similar style too. We also visited from Bratislava which is only an hour away! Exploring Vienna, what was once the shared capital with Budapest, we came across so many stunning churches as well as other impressive and impeccable architecture. Vienna really is a dream of a city to visit!
