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, and St. Stephen's Basilica is the biggest church in Budapest and, along with the Parliament building, is one of the highest buildings in the city so it is difficult to miss it. Just make sure you take our flyer or map from your hostel, or use our handy ‘view on map’ tab above.
