St Stephens Basilica - Review

St Stephen’s Basilica, also known as Szent Istvan Bazilika is locally considered to be the most important church in the city of Budapest. It has a very high historical value. The Basilica is named after Stephen I, the first King of Hungary. His hand is said to be housed inside the reliquary. This church started as the sixth largest church in Hungary and this was recorded before the year 1920. Today, it is the third highest church in Hungary and is considered to be one of the most important tourist attractions in the city. The most striking fact about this building is that it stands almost at an equal height to the Parliament Building, making it one of the two tallest buildings in Budapest. Ever since its inception, the musical community has owed a lot to the St Stephen Basilica for encouraging the particular art form. It also houses the great St Stephen Bell and is a complete delight for any music lover to visit and witness the best of Hungarian Organ players enrich the musical history of the Basilica.

St Stephens Basilica, Budapest Reviews

  • Absolutely beautiful. Entry is free. Opens between 9 and 10 in the morning. We went as it opened which was nice as there were not many tourists yet. The architecture is breathtaking and the place is well maintained. There is a small curio shop at the entrance managed by a fairly grumpy lady. However the prices were reasonable and I ended up buying a beautiful Byzantine Icon. Definitely cool place to visit in Budapest.

  • There are amazing views from the top across Budapest. It costs 400HUF if you are a student. The price is the same whether you take the lift or stairs. There are 304 stairs on the way up that are well worth walking. There is also a small lift that is relatively fast. Once at the top of the building you can walk around and see different sides of Budapest. I would definitely recommend this for tourists.

  • Enjoyed the Basilica a lot. The square outside is in a nice area of Budapest. Getting inside is free, but a symbolic donation of 1€ is suggested. The Basilica is really well maintained and they organize daily functions and concerts. Definitely to visit if you're in Budapest! I'll go there again

  • This church is amazing and free to enter. You can a very small fee to go up to the dome for a view of the city. We actually went to their Friday night concert which was very, very well done and performed amazingly. We got the category III. seats which are furthest from the Alter but it honestly doesn’t matter at all. You can see everything and more importantly HEAR everything. And they are the cheapest! You also see more of the church in general. The great organ was immense. The show runs about 1.25 hours and is worth the 15$.

  • This is one of the most stunning buildings I’ve ever seen. The architecture is just truly amazing !! The entry is cheap and it is somewhat crowded. And you definitely have to visit the top, the view you will get is great. This visit will definitely worth it !!
