The Basilica Reviews
لقد تذكرني معبد إجر الرئيسي بسبب تصميمه غير العادي وأبعاده الضخمة. في كل المجر يوجد ثلاثة مبانٍ فقط. تم تزيين الكاتدرائية بطريقة أصلية. يشبه المعابد القديمة: نفس الأعمدة الطويلة ، الرواق ، المثلث الثل... more »The main Temple of Iger reminded me of its unusual design and its huge dimensions. In all of Hungary there are only three buildings. The cathedral is originally decorated. Looks like ancient temples: the same long columns, the hallway, the triangular triangle, the sculptures on the roof. Just instead of a quarter of the horses that crowned the theatrical buildings, the Virgin Mary stood in Eger. The similarity was reinforced by the strange composition of the cathedral. We used to see bell towers along the edges of the façade, and Iger Cathedral received two large towers at the far end of the altar. I even thought the building wasn't finished yet. There are certainly places for two other bell towers, as expected, on both sides of the main façade.

But unfortunately for me, the most beautiful is the Uton-utfelen bushing, and the Adomanygyujto Kosarka, where the O's words can be "reciprocated". The lovely itself, but not a program of the same kind.
