At a height of 96 metres, St. Stephen’s Basilica is the third tallest building in Hungary. It took more than fifty years to build and plays host to Hungary’s biggest church bell.

Besides the impressive Neo-Classical structure itself, the building contains many surprises. You can see Sisi’s (Empress Elisabeth of Austria’s) own handmade embroidery, as well as József Mindszenty’s (Prince Primate, Archbishop of Esztergom) entire heritage.

Back in 2014, a similarly impressive building feat was accomplished right in front of the basilica. An incredible 34.76m Lego tower was erected, using over 450,000 blocks.
If that isn’t enough, you can add to your experience by climbing to the top of the building and do what our brilliant photographer, Zoltán Pelle did.
Enjoy the breath-taking view of Budapest and send us your best photographs.
