Particularly impressive stained glass windows, which depict the heroes of epic poems. No less greatness give:

  • leather sofas;
  • marble columns;
  • fountains with mineral drinking water.

Kupalya GellertDue to the sources of mineral water coming from Mount Gellert, their temperature always ranges from +38 - +43 C.
