St. Stephen’s Basilica (Szent Istvan Bazilika), Budapest

Situated in the center of Pest, eastern part of Budapest is St. Stephen’s Basilica. The grandness and hugeness of this monument simply attracts. Incredible architecture, this is an imposing building in a very central location. The Basilica is one of the two tallest buildings in Budapest at 96 meters (315 ft). It is equal to the height of Hungarian parliament. Wiki mentions: this equation symbolizes that worldly and spiritual thinking have the same importance. True or False?!

According to current regulations there cannot be taller building in Budapest than 96 metres (315 ft).

    Such an incredible church and the beautiful blue skies are the perfect backdrop! Interesting equation relating to worldly and spiritual thinking! I don't necessarily agree, but that does seem to be the belief in our world today! Great post as always, Indrani! Enjoy your evening!

    Lovely architecture! I'm impressed with the way Hungarian Govt has decided to restrict the height of any buildings to 315 ft. This shows the importance of this church as it holds in the Hungarian history!
