Tis area of the city used to be St. Peter village. According to documents dating from 1416 a church was built in honor of St. Peter and Paul.

The present day Neo-Gothic church was built between 1844-1848 over the crypt of the old church. The interior painting is the work of Károly Szatmáry, who had been instructed by Hübner, a master of arts and crafts. The painting was modeled on the crowning church in Buda.

Until 1899 the gate with the St. Michael statues belonged to St. Michael church.

The seven figures are the work of Johannes König, and were made in memory of the plague epidemics between 1738-1742. The Virgin Mary statues located behind the church were also made after the plague. The group of statues is the work of Mihály Antal.
