“Beautiful and stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

The church is one of the most famous and that is why I could see that it was crowded all along nevertheless the place is absolutely breathtaking both from its exteriors and interiors as well. The interiors have some of the most fascinating works I have ever seen. The place is also near to some amazing restaurants and shops so your visit to the place won’t be a total loss.

It’s in the center of Budapest so it’s really difficult to be missed. I didn’t been on the top but apparently its worth to see. Inside its really amazing. It’s huge. Go and see

“Vist during Lent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

One of the most beautiful cathedral I have ever seen. Very close to the underground station. They have a evening orchestra performed in the cathedral.

“Climb to the top, its worth the hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

The only downside to this attraction was that on Saturday, when we visited, there seems to be a conveyor belt of weddings, so you can only do the dome and the side chapel and will not get to visit the tomb of Puskas

Dating back to 1851, this beautiful church is worth taking the time to visit, serene and beautiful and not off the beaten track!
