Evangelical Church, Siófok

The church designed by famous architect Imre Makovecz and built in 1990 is one of the most memorable sights of Siófok.

As with most of the buildings of Makovecz, the main material used is wood, implicating a harmony between man and nature. The wood the church was built from was donated to the congregation by the sister city of Siófok, Oulu in Finland. As a sign of gratitude, the park around the church was named Oulo Park by the city.

The church is also called the "Ship of Christ" due to its shape pointing in all four directions with four separate entrances. The main entrance is decorated with angel wings which is said to protect the people entering. On the top of the tower there is a tree of life with a cross representing the victory of life over death. Above the main altar there is a statue by the Transylvanian sculptor, László Péterfy.

The church can only seat 120 people. Today it is considered a national monument.

During the summer season, due to the many Evangelical tourists, there is a German language mass every Sunday. The church is also a venue for concerts.
