St. Michael's Chapel

The chapel dedicated to Archangel Michael, the guide of souls to the other world.

The chapel, which can be found a short distance from St. Elisabeth's Cathedral, comes from the 14th century. It represents the culmination of the gothic period and is surprising by its stylish precision, intimacy and harmony. 

At one time it was surrounded by the city cemetery and contained an ossuary. This is why it is devoted to the escort of souls to the other side, Archangel Michael. His statue depicting the judging of the dead souls is placed above the entrance to the chapel.
