Greek temple

From the banks of the Danube, you can immediately see the green church tower, which evokes a real Mediterranean atmosphere in the narrow winding street. This is certainly the tower of the Greek church, in the courtyard of the Ignatius Tragor Museum. 

The Orthodox merchants from Vác, called Greeks, settled in Vác at the beginning of the 18th century, and then, together with settlers of other ethnicities, e.g. Serbs, they started the construction of the church as a community at the end of the 18th century. 

Its interesting feature is that its entrance does not open from the street. This is because at this time only a Catholic church could be built on a main road, so a wealthy Vác family offered their own plot of land where they could build the church. 

If you have been to Vác many times, the building of the Greek Temple is surely familiar to you. Its interior is truly special, nowadays it is an exhibition hall, which awaits those interested with fine arts, history, archaeology, ethnography and interdisciplinary exhibitions from spring to autumn.

*The church is currently only accessible from the outside due to renovations.
