There was a nice concert in the night, and the building is wounderfull. The location is good as well, and if you wish to visit something from the past, it's highly recommended.

Very very very beautiful.... but not in your face. You kind of would miss it if you weren’t paying attention as all of the buildings are extremely ornate with beautiful architecture

We attended the evening concert to get a good feel for the interior with the benefit of the music. The inside is beautiful, but the chairs were both uncomfortable and squeaky.

from my point of view, a must see in Budapest. Very big Basilika with lots of interesting areas to explore. It's one of the most beautiful churches I've seen so far.

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
