Máriapócs (Romanian: Pociu) is a small town in Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg county, in the Northern Great Plain region of eastern Hungary. It lies near Nyíregyháza. It is an important place for pilgrimage. It has a Greek Catholic church, which houses the Weeping Black Madonna, an enormous ornate iconostasis that now takes pride of place above the altar. This icon is not the original, but a 19th-century copy. The original one is kept in St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna.[1]
