St Stephen's Basilica - Szent István Bazilika
Splendid views of Budapest.
This is one of the largest churches in Budapest, its dome visible from all over the city. It was built between 1851 and 1905 in the classical style and houses the most important relic in Hungary - the holy right arm - of the country's first king for whom the basilica is named.
Visitors can view some important works of art in the church such as the Alajos Stróbl statues and a painting by Gyula Benczúr. St. Stephen's Basilica has placed the country under the protection of the Blessed Virgin. The cathedral's dome is accessible to visitors and affords splendid views of Budapest.
