Basilica in Eger edit

The third largest in Hungary (the other two are in Esztergom and Budapest). The Basilica was built between 1831 and 1836 in classical style. It was built by the plan of József Hild,-most famous neo-classicist work the Saint Stephen's Basilica located in Budapest,-between 1831 and 1836, ordered by archbishop Pyrker. The statues standing outside the cathedral are works of Marco Casagrande. The organ of the Basilica was made by company Moser in Salzburg at the end of 19th century. In the main season (15 May-15 Oct) visitors can listen to organ concerts every day (30 min., 15 May-15 Oct: M-Sa 11:30; Su 12:30). The frescos decorating the domes of the church were painted by an artist from the nearby small town, Mezőkövesd, typical folk art motives can be discovered in his paintings.
