Serbian Church or Greek Orthodox Serbian Church is situated in a hill next to the historic city centre. The church was completed in 1799 designed by János Povolni in Late-Baroque style. It was renovated in 1979, now it functions as a museum as well waiting for tourists and visitors. The building cannot be visited on Monday.

The interior design of the church is different from the other Baroque churches in Eger.  The major attraction inside is the wall of icons made in Baroque and Late-Baroque style, depicting Saint Nicolas, the apostols, saints, prophets. The sanctuary, the altar with canope and an exhibition showing a pilgrimage site are nice attractions. It is worth paying attention to the special late Baroque pulpit and the red pine benches, too.

In Vitkovics House, next to the church is arranged the memorial room of Mihály Vitkovics, poet born in Eger, who wrote several times about his respect to Eger. Fine-arts exhibitions can be seen in the house as well. Vitkovics House can be visited free.
