Church of Ják Reproduction at Vajdahunyad Castle in Budapest, Hungary

In 1256, the Benedictines built a monastery and abbey church in Ják, a small village in western Hungary. The Church of Ják was replicated at Vajdahunyad Castle in order to showcase Romanesque architecture from the 11th – 13th centuries. Above the elaborate tympanum are sculptures of the Twelve Apostles with Christ in the middle. This version of Jaki kapolna is a functioning Catholic chapel.
