The Cathedral and its surroundings, The ecclesiastical centre of Vác. Opposite is the Bishop's Palace, behind the parish, to the side is the college and Piarist grammar school, and the Karolina primary school.
The Karolina Catholic School was once run by the nuns of St. Vincent, and behind the school and the canon's houses stands the chapel and convent of the Sisters of the Viscese. The chapel, which also has a chancel, was erected in 1905 by Bishop Károly Csáky, and named after his mother, the Karolina Chapel. The medieval-style church houses a unique, intact decorative painting by Aladár Körösfői-Kriesch, a significant monument of Hungarian Art Nouveau. The Romanesque chapel is only to be visited on festive occasions, when the richly decorated altar and stained-glass windows are worth a visit.
It is interesting to note that the 1978 film based on the novel by Magda Szabó Abigél in 1978, the Karolina School also appears in the film, as one of the filming locations was the square in front of the Cathedral. From the school's window, curious onlookers watched the students of the "Matula" and the "Kokas Pál Institute" filling the square.
