Admire the massive structure, ornate details, and folk-art frescoes of The Basilica, a 19th-century Classicist church recognizable by its hulking size and yellow color. The elaborate exterior features several statues, tall columns, two sanctuary towers, and a magnificent dome. Step inside to see the even more ornate interior, where high ceilings lead to colorful frescoes by folk artist István Takács. If you're lucky, you'll be treated to the sounds of its dramatic organ being played. Plan your The Basilica visit and explore what else you can see and do in Eger using our Eger trip builder.

The Basilica reviews
Very impressive building. Unfortunately being renovated and closed so we didn't see much... I hope it will be opened soon for public.

The Basilica in Eger and the surrounding areas were under construction. I was not a good timing for visiting. However, the Basilica looked fine.
