0 Budapest: St. Stephen's Basilica

St. Stephen's Basilica, completed in 1905, sits firmly in the center of Pest.  It took 54 years to compete, and is tied as the highest building in Budapest, equal with Parliament.  

One of Budapest's Christmas Markets occupies St. Stephen's Square in front of the Basilica.
