The church of the Visitation of Our Lady in Bačka Topola was built in 1906, after the Neo-Gothic design of Ferenc Raiche. It houses the altar-pieces of the former church (Mary meets Elizabeth, Saint John of Nepomuk and Saint Wendelin). The classical statue of a woman’s figure raised to the memory of Baron József Kray in 1805 was originally also made for the old, Baroque church. The stained-glasses of the sanctuary windows were made in 1907 by glass painter maters from Pest (Imre Zsellér: Baptism of Jesus; and Károly Majoros: Saint Elisabeth, Saint Margaret, Gerard Sagredo and Saint Michael). The furnishing is the work of the Stufflesser firm. The construction of the Neo-Gothic high altar contains the unique, art nouveau, multipartite altar-piece, made by Andor Dudits (Budapest, 1866 – Budapest, ?), a painter from the capital. The nave of the church of the Visitation of Our Lady in Bačka Topola has the larges surface among all the churches in Vojvodina.
