This is certainly an impressive structure to see from the outside. The neoclassical architecture is striking. But from the inside, from the perspective of seeing many basilicas and cathedrals, I found it an average site.
Caught the remnants of mass with organ music and stunning sound. Unfortunately tourists were causing problems passing through the barriers and even moving them....how disrespectful. Donate a little, light a candle and give thanks that you are in such a beautiful place.
This church is lovely inside and out. You have to pay a small donation to get in which is reasonable, as usually places like these cost a lot of tourists. If you are visiting Budapest then definitely go to this church whilst you are sightseeing.

Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area.

We went early in the morning when it first opened to our surprise no tickets needed! It was free :) we also were surprised that most of the sites around Budapest Castle were also free (Fisherman’s Bastilion)
