Photographer's Note

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.
