St Stephens Basilica, Budapest Reviews - Write a Review
Gorgeous architecture. I didn't get to go inside but it seems like they regularly throw events outside the building, which is nice. We were in Budapest for Thanksgiving weekend and they had a lovely Christmas market going on around the Basilica along with a cool projector show displayed with music, Christmas tree, and even skating rink.
A very beautiful place to visit.Even if you aren’t religious, the interior decor was amazing and reminded me of a small St. Peter’s from Rome. There was church music and a live choir performing. I took many pictures and lit a candle for my mom who is a Catholic. It’s 200 HUF to get in(less than a Euro). I spent about 30 minutes there and enjoyed a peaceful visit. It’s an additional 600 HUF to climb up for the panoramic view. Well worth the view but so cold and windy this time of year.
I'm not religious, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate the architecture and the awe inspiring grandeur of this basilica. A must visit for anyone in Budapest and make sure to see the inside of the dome. It's beautiful.
Beautiful on the outside but even better is the Christmas market they kickoff the last Friday in November. Through Christmas Day they will have a market open every weekend with projection art on the basilica and food and ice skating. Truly a Christmas dream!!
Stunning place! The basilica is gorgeous! U have been in the most important ones in the world and this is surely in the top 5. There are also cconcerts inside and the possibility of walking up to see amazing views.
