The Saint Stephen's Basilica in Budapest

The Saint Stephen's Basilica in Budapest

The Saint Stephen's Basilica is one of the most beautiful and most important religious and tourist sights of Hungary. The largest church in Budapest, dedicated to Stephen I (997-1038), Hungary's first Christian King was canonized in the presence of Francis Joseph I in 1905; the church was built in two architectural styles (classicist and neo-Renaissance) from 1851 over 60 years. The church of Greek cross plan was built by Jozsef Hild - architect of the cathedrals in Esztergom and Eger -, Miklós Ybl and József Kauser. The interior of Saint Stephen's Basilica, holding 8500 persons, rich in artwork: decorated with paintings and sculptures created by the greatest Hungarian artists, for example Mór Than, Bertalan Székely, Gyula Benczúr, Károly Lotz, Alajos Stróbl, János Fadrusz, Béni Ferenczy and Árpád Feszty.

Since 1971 the mummified right hand of King Stephen the Saint's, called Holy Right Hand is kept here, in the Chapel of the Holy Right Hand. This is the most important relic of Christian Hungarian statehood, taken in a procession around the basilica on 20th August every year (Saint Stephen's day) remembering of the foundation of the Hungarian state and canonisation of King Stephen (20th August in 1083). After 20 years of restoration work, which was costed more than 4 billion Hungarian forint (about 15 millions euro) and finished in 2003, the Saint Stephen's Basilica expect visitors in its grandeur. The Basilica has six bells, one of them, called Saint Stephen's big bell, situated in the southern tower. Hungary's largest bell weighing 9 tons, made in Passau (situated on the Bavarian-Austrian border) in 1990, rings twice a year: on 20th August at 5 PM and New Year's Eve at midnight.
