Definitely worth going to the top and inside. The view from outside is worth seeing in the evening and daytime! Beautiful lighting :)

Amazing view goes with astonishing architecture. Avoid the weekends if possible, if not go early morning it will be less crowded. Price of the ticket is cheap, compering with what is waiting for you at the top :) If you get lucky to get sunny weather, well you will be speechless. Walk to the top, take elevator down. My recommendation
Have a fun!

Beautiful sanctuary - we were lucky enough to participate in Sunday Mass here and be able to really soak in the splendor of this temple.
There are not many signs or explanations so you might wish to come here as part of a tour or read up in your guidebook beforehand.

This church is a gem in Budapest. You can see it from evey point in the city. The dome reminds us St peter s dom in Vatican. All the sculptures and paintings are amazing. The neoclassical structure and the interior decoration makes of this church a world heritage. We were lucky to see a wedding at the time of our visit
