What a view from the top, a great panorama of Budapest
Sep 2021
Even for folks who do not often visit churches and the like this is a place well worth a visit. Magnificent.

Make sure you buy a ticket to go to the viewing balcony up top, well worth it, stunning views not to be missed

Color full church
Oct 2020 • Couples
This is the most beautiful and important church in Budapest. The colors dance in it.There are colored glass that is the only remnant of the true church from the time of World War II. The dome of the original church is unique. The area around the church is also very beautiful.Be sure to visit this place and walk in the surrounding streets both day and night.

Beautiful cathedral, very impressive in the old city of Budapest. Definitively worth admiring the majestic inside, lots of history behind the walls

Amazing landmark of Budapest

A beautiful basilica, both inside and outside. The interior is impressive while the architecture dominates the entire area.

I remember this was one of the first places I’ve seen in Budapest. It’s a very beautiful basilica dedicated to the first king of Hungary.

Overcrowded

There is an observation deck which offers a panoramic view of the city. But this is overrated church. Yes, the rich interior decoration is definitely a surprise, but it is overcrowded.

It is one of the landmark buildings in downtown Budapest. An absolute must to visit. Go to the top and you can get a really nice view of the central city.
