An elevator takes up the visitors in the left tower, from where a magnificent panorama of the city can be enjoyed. Not only the streets and squares of downtown Pest, but also the Castle hill, the Citadel and the other Buda hills are visible. In the right tower the largest bell of the country - weighs 9 tons - can be found.
The Chapel of the Holy Right is behind the sanctuary, where the right hand of the first Hungarian king, St. Stephen is held in a delicatly ornated reliquary.
The Basilica has been recently renovated, its huge walls have been cleaned and the surroundings have been nicely arranged too.
The square in front of the church became a beautiful pedestrian area with some cafés and benches to sit on.
