Notes on the Geography of Hungary: Pest of the Habsburgs: Photo 8
We're looking back to the Buda side, from where the previous pictures were taken. The church is now the Matthias Church, after King Matthias Corvinus (1443-1490); the name in Hungarian is Hunyadi Matyas. In Baedeker's time this was the Coronation Church, because it was here that Franz Joseph was crowned King of Hungary in 1867. Long ago and far away.
