Visit the prominent Hungarian landmark St. Stephen's Basilica (Szent Istvan Bazilika), known for its 91 m (300 ft) Neo-Renaissance-style dome. This Roman Catholic basilica--built in the Neoclassic architectural style with a Greek Cross floor plan--was completed in 1905 and used for military purposes during World War II. While it is still used for religious worship today, this church is also one of the most visited tourist sites in the country. The right hand of St. Stephen I, the first King of Hungary, is housed in the church's reliquary. View the basilica's structure and bell towers from the square in front of its main entrance, explore the interior of the church, and climb the 364 stairs (or take the elevator) to the top of the dome, which overlooks the city.

  • If you go there you MUST take the stairs (or the elevator) to the top for a 360 degree view of Budapest. Day or night! Inside, the Basilica is ornate and breathtaking!

  • This is very beautiful basilica in center of town. It is one of the postcard image place of Budapest.There is no charge to see the Basilica, it is free of charge but you should give some donation. Also you can go on the top to have a panoramic view which cost you around 10 euro, there is an elevator. There are lots of good restaurant nearby
  • Very nice place to visit. The interior is beautiful. Climbing the tower part was awesome. A lot of steps, but it's worth it. There is a toilet at the middle part of the tower. The views are incredible
