The St. Stephen’s Basilica in Budapest is Hungary’s largest church is called the church to its enormous size. It was built in 1851, initially by Jozsef Hild in neoclassical style and then continued by Miklos Ybl in neo-Renaissance style. Was completed in 1905 by architect third, Jozsef Kraus, who dedicated his work, especially within the church. We admire the rich ornamental decoration inside, one of the main tourist attractions of the country. Inside the church is a relic of the holy King Stephen I, the first king of Hungary, the ‘sacred right’, the right hand of the king. In addition to admiring the many works of art inside, we recommend an uphill lift to the left of the tower structure, where you can enjoy a panoramic view of Budapest. In the tower on the right is located the biggest bell Hungary, weighing about 9 tonnes. If you visit the city during the summer, do not miss to attend the concerts of classical music are often scheduled within the church.
