St-Stephen’s Basilica, Budapest.

 

My wonderful cousin and his lovely girlfriend brought Matt and I to see the basilica. The ceilings are painted and gold leafed, simply stunning. The basilica also houses the dried up old hand of a famous saint which sits in a golden cage on display. Though I understand that the hand has great significance to the religious people of Budapest, I thought it was rather creepy.
