Saint István's Basilica in Budapest is the largest church of the capital. It was built between 1851 and 1905 in neo-Renaissance style, its professional restoration was finished in 2003. The impressive exterior of the building is in harmony with the artistic interior: at the sanctuary you can see the Carrara marble statue of St. Stephen, the first Hungarian king. In the Holy Right Hand chapel you can see a national relic of Hungary, the Holy Right Hand of St. Stephen. The treasury is open to the public and visitors can enjoy the panorama of Budapest from the round look-out tower between April and October (a lift is available). The more than 100-year-old, renewed organ and the wonderful acoustics of the church make it possible to organize unforgettable church music concerts here.

beautiful indoor shot.
I can totally understand the difficult nature as you had to use a slow shutter of 1/10
but seeing the high height of the dome and the elegant structure is very awe inspiring...here in Canada we don't really have such Cathedrals

A beautiful cathedral, full of color and impressive design. The layout of your shots reminds me a little of st peters of Rome, it has that same kind of breath taking impressive stature. Really nice composition of it too, the image is topped perfectly by that dome.

Bonsoir, cher Ovidiu,
Splendeurs d'une époque où l'art de bâtir était pratiquement à son apogée.
La beauté intérieure témoigne de ce magnificence.
Très belle présentation.

Impossible de ne pas regarder vers le haut lorsqu'on entre dans ces basiliques. Le dôme superbement illuminé est de toute beauté et ressort très bien dans ce plafond d'arches.

architecture of interior is beautiful. Good symmetric composition. I like the details but pity that image is a bit unsharp. I know, there was no much light.
Have a nice day.

is not easy to reach a good result in this kind of photos inside a huge building, as the beautiful Basilica in Budapest.
But you did it, and with the quality of the image, its perfect light, its warm tonalities, and the wonderful architectural elements, create a delightful composition.
An excellent work.

Despite the fact that the picture is blurred, you show us here a great view of the interior of the Saint Stephen's Basilica. I have to admit that it looks very impressive.
Excellent composition including the interior of that wonderful dome.
Best regards, Paul

This looks an elegant and majestic indoor architecture nicely taken in this orientation, incredibly ornate and beautifully lit with strong vertical for photographic impact rendering that extra dimension to the image. Fabulous rich colors, great contrast and sharp too. You have done a great job here producing an extremely cool shot! Congrats.
