St. Stephans Basilika - St. Stephen's Basilica

St. Stephen’s Basilica, Budapest 2015

St. Stephan’s Basilica is located on St. Stephans Square in the Pest district and since its inauguration in 1905 has been the largest church in the Hungarian capital Budapest. In 1987, she became a UNESCO World Heritage site as part of the Danube panorama.

The impressive dimensions of the basilica are particularly evident when you enter the interior of the church and look up to the mighty 96-meter-high dome, where you will find an impressive mosaic depicting God, Jesus, and various angels.

In 1851 the construction of the basilica began according to the neoclassical style of József Hild. One among many relics preserved in the church is the embalmed right hand of King Stephen.
