The St. Stephen's Basilica is named in honour of Stephen, the first King of Hungary (c 975–1038). It is the largest Roman Catholic church of Budapest and similarly to the Parliament it is 96 meters high which makes it the highest building of Budapest.
An elevator takes up the visitors in the left tower from where a magnificent panorama of the city can be enjoyed. The view from the cupola is beautiful! The Basilica is also the favourit place of classical music lovers, plenty of concerts to chose from and the acoustics is excellent.
The square in front of the church became a beautiful pedestrian area with many café terraces.

Close to the Basilica is the Elisabeth Square together with the neighbouring Deak Square, is the ever-bustling centre of Budapest. Here the three metro lines meet and this is the starting point for the Hop-on Hop-off Green Tour. During the summer months a very popular meeting place is the grassy terrace of the Aquarium Club. This is the largest green area of downtown Budapest with the Danubius Fountain in the middle. The Lutheran Church was designed by Michael Pollack.
