The historic reformed church is in Kossuth Street. The early gothic, one-nave stone building, with wide supporting pillars without a steeple, was erected in the second half of the 13th century. The gable roof is tiled, and the main entrance on the western facade is in Gothic style. The ceiling of the church is plain, covered with wooden planks. On the western side there is a wooden gallery. In the shrine there is a semi-circle triumphal arch, and a sanctity chamber decorated with cloverleaf shaped arches, and red marble inscription. The church is very interesting both from the church-historic and cultural historic point of view. It was recorded in contemporary documents as a Roman catholic church built between 1332-1335 in honor of the Virgin Mary. The Protestant priests of the Bereg region held a council here on 17th March, 1678. One of the famous decisions of the council was prohibiting piping and snuffing for the priests, ordered by Bishop Matthias of Nógrád county. In front of the church, at 4 Kossuth Street is a historic wooden bell tower, erected in the 18th century. This pyramidal belfry with shingled roof originates from Tarpa, and there is a carved Cyrillic inscription on it.
