The Bakócz Chapel (or Annuntiatio Chapel) in the Esztergom Basilica - Esztergom (Gran), Ungarn The Bakócz Chapel (or Annuntiatio Chapel) in the Esztergom Basilica

The St. Adalbert's Church stood on the site of the current Esztergom Basilica, it was built in the age of St. Stephen (in the first third of the 11th century). That cathedral was destroyed first by conflagration then later by the Ottoman Turks, who also used it as a mosque for a while. In 1594 during the recapturing of the castle the here stored gunpowder was exploded, and only the renaissance style red marble chapel of archbishop Tamás Bakócz (1506-1511) remained intact. This was disassembled into 1600 pieces in the mid-18th century, then it was built into the walls of the Basilica.

The original 49-stop and 3530-pipe church organ of the Esztergom Basilica was constructed by the Austrian Ludwig Mooser, it was inaugurated in 1856 and at that time it was the largest in Hungary. The sound of the instrument was influenced by the experiences of the master, that he gained in the vicinity of Salzburg (his native land) in the mid-1800s. The original Mooser-organ was highly damaged in the World War II, so a new instrument was built into the church. After all, from the mid-1970s a new church organ was started to be constructed, which also includes the survived pipes from the old organ. The 146-stop organ was designed and the works were led by the organist and choirmaster of the basilica István Baróti (1940-2014). The longest pipe is almost 11 meters in length, as well as the shortest is just 7 mm long. By the way, this 49-stop organ is planned to be the third largest church organ in Europe and the largest in Hungary again.

The graphics was made by silkscreen technics and representing György Szelepcsényi György (1595-1685) archbishop of Esztergom. This work of art wa created by the artist in 1983, in his very characteristic style.

The painter sent one of these paintings to Pope John Paul II, and the other one has appeared on an auction in 2003, it was sold then for HUF 1,000,000.
