“Saw a concert there”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

We visited the Basilica the evening that we went to the concert with two organs playing along with a singer and and a trumpet player. It was about an hour long and very enjoyable.

“Amazing Interior”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

The Basilica is situated walking distance from the Danube promenade and most hotels. Its beautiful interior shows the heritage of Hungary at its peak. There are many good restaurants around it as well so when you plan to go there plan enough time to have a meal in the area.

Stunning expirience to observe such splendor: magnificent statues, stained glass with images of saints, paintings on the walls and ceilings; and above all the atmosphere of tranquility and peace.
