The bottom of the building was unfortunately transformed. But the most impressive part is this magnificent mosaic of Miksa Roth, called the "Birth of Hungary", which represents the protective virgin of Hungary and is honored by all the Hungarian people. Among the worshipers, angels, shepherds, common people, we recognize famous figures like Prince Rakóczi, Count Istvan Széchenyi and Lajos Kossuth. A little shocking though: the mother of Christ carries a sword!
