Things To Do Near St. Stephen's Cathedral in Budapest

Staying near the St. Stephen's Basilica and are after things to do in your own „back yard"? Then it's this top 10 that will keep you occupied, for the first few days at least! The St. Stephen's Basilica is located on the accordingly named St. Stephen's Square in the heart of the city, with many of Budapest's must see's as its neighbour.

Our first three picks are all located along and include the Andrássy Avenue that stems from the central park, Elizabeth Square only a few minute's walk from the Basilica. Being the longest and most elegant boulevard of the city, architectural masterpieces, classy shops, theatres, cafés and restaurants can be found all the way along. The Opera House has a breathtaking exterior with a similarly overwhelming interior. Tickets are available from 500ft! The Postal Museum located in a 19th century mansion is also worth a visit whilst in the neighbourhood.

In fourth and fifth place are the Vörösmarthy Square and Váci Street, two gems of the city. Shop, drink coffee, have cake and soak in the elegant atmosphere of the Secessionist buildings!

The next three attractions are located on Roosevelt Square: The Pest end of the Chain Bridge, the Gresham Palace and the Academy of Sciences. The Chain Bridge was the first ever bridge to span the Danube connecting Buda and Pest. Gresham Palace is not just an imposing building, but a five-star Hotel with a luxurious spa, café and restaurant. The Academy of Sciences with its Neo- Renaissance palace-like building is the symbol of Hungarian science and knowledge.

The Parliament only a few minute's walk from Roosevelt Square is unmissable, being the largest building of the country. A ride on Tram No. 2 shouldn't be missed either, running along the Embankment with a great view of the Buda Hills and some architectural masterpieces including the Parliament.
