Directions

By Metro:


The closest metro station to St. Stephen's Basilica is Bajcsy-Zsilinszky út Metro station (yellow line). This would leave you at Andrássy Avenue which is one of the main streets of Budapest, from there you can easily see the back of the Basilica (It is the highest building in town, can't miss it babe!) So just walk there and you'll find us in front of the Basilica. Look for the guides with light-blue umbrellas, t-shirts and name tags.


 


On foot:


Budapest is a very walkable city, you can get to the main attractions in 15 mins walking and St. Stephen's Basilica is the biggest church in Budapest and also the highest building of the city (together with the Parliament) so is difficult to miss it out. You can walk to St. Stephen's Basilica from your Hostel, just make sure you take our flyer-map.
