What people are saying:

The Basilica of St Isht is located on the Pest side of Budapest, Hungary. Although the church is still two blocks from the Danube, due to its majestic figure, the church on the other side of the Buda can be seen from a distance up the hill. Unlike the gothic style of the Margash Cathedral, which is slightly less famous than the Margash Cathedral, the church is Baroque and the interior is very distinctive.

Introduction

Considered to be the most important Christian building in the country, the St. Stephen's Basilica in Budapest, Hungary, is a sight of everlasting proportions. The building of the church was completed in 1905 after a staggering 54 years of construction. It is also the third tallest building in Hungary and the tallest in the city of Budapest as city ordinances mandate that no structure can be higher than the church's 96 meters. Neo-classical in architectural design, the inside of the church has a quite baroque feel to it with the overwhelming amount of imagery and colors used. With concerts in the Basilica and word renown bells, St. Stephen's Basilica creates a memorable and unique experience.
