Size and decorations matter, the Stefanus Basilica in Budapest

The Stefanus Basilica is one of the largest churches in the world and the Hungarians are proud of this. It has a capacity of more than 8.000 people, a landmark of Budapest and one of the symbols of the country. The dome dominates the view of the church and the city skyline.

The interior is richly decorated but a bit dark. It was very difficult to take reasonable pictures. What impressed us the most were the altars, wall and ceiling paintings. It is rare that a church contains so much detail.

De Stefanuskerk is één van de grootste ter wereld en de Hongaren zijn hier trots op. Met zijn capaciteit van meer als 8.000 mensen is het een top bezienswaardigheden in Boedapest en een icoon voor het land. De hoge koepel domineert het zicht van de kerk en de skyline van de stad. 

Het interieur is rijk gedecoreerd maar wat donker. Het was er moeilijk redelijke foto's te trekken. We waren het meest onder de indruk van de grote altaren, muur en plafondschilderijen. Het is uitzonderlijk dat een kerk zo veel details bevat.

  1. I love the dome, both inside and out. And also the beautiful carvings outside just under the dome. You are right, the inside is very dark.
