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.

The Reformed Church was probably built in the 14th century and was modified several times during the following centuries. At the beginning of the 1900s, during a fire caused by a lightning strike, the frescoes were partially destroyed; the most damaged ones were whitewashed, but some fragments are still visible today. Saint Ladislaus’ figure, depicted with a battle axe, appears on the southern wall beside Saint Stephen and Saint Emeric. Renaissance tombstones are also found in the church, which can be connected to the Telegdi family.
