As the name suggests this church is built in a cave at the side of Gellert Hill and is a very unique church quite different from the others we have seen on our trip. No cost involved, but a small stall outside run by parishioners...More

Gellert Hill
If you want to treat your camera to some amazing
scenery, Gellért Hill is a must on your itinerary. A
funicular journey from the Chain Bridge along the
hillsides provides a fast connection between Buda and
Pest, hoisting visitors to panoramic vistas. Once on
top of the hill, you’ll find the Citadel dominate the
landscape with its imposing 19th century construction,
a site that’s hard to keep your eyes on without being

The statue of St Stephen is outside the church so you can walk straight up and get a good view of the river and bridge too.
