This Basilica wold have to be one of the most beautiful we had seen. It is well worth a visit. We were lucky enough to visit on a day when a choir and orchestra were practising and the sound was magical.

The word "awesome' is used so frequently now, but this word truly describes this Basilica. I was taken aback by the beauty, artistry and craftsmanship. A must see while in Budapest.

I went on a Sunday afternoon. The majority of the church was blocked off due to what appeared to be a baptism. I guess it's understandable because this is a working church, however it was disappointing for me because I couldn't see the church interior. The tower was still open and had nice views. Was traveling with my father who is older, so it was nice to have the elevator.
