Saint Ladislaus’ memory is still alive in the Hungarian culture: the knight king is present in our legends, he is the hero of our tales and the central figure of many pilgrimages. We invite you to visit the 49 locations in Transylvania, Hungary, Slovakia and Serbia to discover everything that we still cherish from the king’s cult: the built heritage, locations connected to the Saint Ladislaus legends and the beautiful natural landmarks. The project is an ongoing one: our goal is to connect the Hungarians who live in the Carpathian Basin with a cultural tour, presenting the heritage of Saint Ladislaus.
We invite you to visit Transylvania and Hungary, to discover everything that we still cherish from Saint Ladislaus’s cult. Plan your route here.
According to the legend, three fairy girls, Klára, Dála, and Ramocs walked here once, all three settling down in the area, and Dála chose this settlement. The church surrounded with a precinct wall is the most important historical monument of the region; its construction started at the end of the 12th century. The fragments of several wall paintings were discovered in the church. The chancel vaulting was also painted, with coats of arms on the vivid green background: we can identify the Szekler coat of arms along those of Sighișoara (Hu: Segesvár) and Brașov (Hu: Brassó) towns. On the northern wall, the details of the Saint Ladislaus legend can be seen; the figure of the Cuman, shooting an arrow, is easily recognisable
