Hungarian jewel

Heavenly ceilingThis building is one of the grand focal points of Hungary’s capital, Budapest.

St Stephen’s Basilica is a lofty, awe-inspiring piece of architecture – truly fitting for an important European city. 

Its vast dome is a pleasure to photograph, but not without its hazards – I looked so far up there was a compulsion to topple over. There are no restrictions on taking pictures unlike London’s equally significant edifices – a small donation will suffice.

Visitors can also take more than 300 steps to a platform for impressive views across Budapest. For fans of religious buildings and sweeping vistas, this is a must-see.
