The church on the main square.

About the mummy museum (I love that, Mummy Bonanza): "The exhibit in Vác, Hungary is the result of a mummy bonanza discovered during routine restoration of the town’s Dominican church. In 1994 workers discovered a secret crypt that had been bricked up for over 200 years. Inside, 265 hand painted coffins (and reportedly each beautiful and unique) were stacked, one on top of the other, in order of size. Inside, the occupants had naturally mummified, due to perfect conditions of temperature and aridity."

Like the other museum it is closed on Monday and this time I couldn't find anyone around. I looked up the story on the internet and am So sorry to have missed it.
