By Metro:

The closest metro stations to St. Stephen's Basilica are Bajcsy-Zsilinszky út (yellow line); Deák Ferenc tér (red, yellow and blue line conjunction); Arany János utca (blue line). Once you come up from the metro the Basilica will be a comfortable 3 to 5 minute walk. The Basilica is the tallest building in town so is gonna be super easy to find it, especially if you ask for directions from any passers-by on the street. When you arrive to the church look for our guides with light-blue umbrellas, t-shirts, lanyards & namecards near the steps at the main entrance.

On foot:

Budapest is a very walkable city, and St. Stephen's Basilica along with the Parliament building, is the highest building in the city so it is difficult to miss it. Just make sure you take our flyer or map from your accomodation, or download our city map on the link below.

Once you are on the square look for our guides at the steps of the Basilica with light-blue Generation Tours umbrellas, T-shirts and namecards.
