This church was very beautiful both inside and out. I also went up to the dome for the panoramic view of Budapest - worth it! I even went in the pouring rain and the city still looked beautiful on all sides.

Plus, if mummified hands are your thing, well, you can check that out, too.

Beautiful place of prayer and well worth popping in to look around. Only a donation to enter. Lovely altar and St Stephen's hand to see in a side chapel.

We a cold February evening here listening to a string orchestra and then the next morning came back to look around the church and the tower. Worth the visit for the views and it was a lovely experience listening to the music. There is also a lovely chocolate shop/café which do the most amazing hot chocolates to warm your hands.

Beautiful church, inside and out. Worth the walk up the stairs to the dome to get a different perspective of the city.
