“Wow!”

St. Stephen's Basilica is the largest church in Budapest and can accommodate up to 8500 people. It's style is neo-classical and it is truly splendid and well worth a visit.

“Spectacular basilica & great panorama view from its top”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Memorable visit the cupola for a cheap HUF500 ticket. The cupola visit is not a great option for those with wheelchair and baby carriage as the elevator does not take you to the top but you will still need to climb a number of steps. Otherwise a great attraction. Guided tours for groups Mon-Fri.

Fabulous building and interior spectacular, you can climb to the top of the tower and see the city from aloft. There is an elevator if you need it.

“Breathtaking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Dont miss the view from the top. Im a little afraid of heights and this climb was absolutely thrilling, if not just a little scary. Fantastic 360 degree view!
