  • Nice collection of gold background fourteenth century paintings, very interesting and éducative, but some of them are very poorly restaured. But worth seeing.
  • Kereszteny Muzeum or Christian Museum is excellent museum of Hungarian medieval fine arts of XIV-XVI centuries. You are also going to find art of XVII-XIX centuries too. You need to buy a ticket to get in. It is highly recommended to visit that museum while you are in Esztergom. But take into consideration that museum is closed since December 1 till next spring. Esztergom, Hungary 🇭🇺. November 6, 2021.
