    The Cathedral of St. István, inaugurated in 1905, is of beautiful architecture and, at almost 100 meters, it is also the largest church in Budapest. A tower climb is worthwhile because of the great view.

    Every evening before Christmas great free lightshow. Various Christmas concerts at affordable prices. For a few forints, climb up to the tower and be rewarded for a thousand steps with a magnificent view of Budapest.

    Coffeeshop similar to Starbucks. Tartlets are okay.
    Cappuchino was delicious in the big cups.

    Hard impressive interiors. Great view from the roof over the city. Even the climb itself through the building is rewarding.

    All lines, M1, M2, M3, Straba 47,48,49, big bus and taxis.
    At the metro, be sure to pull the ticket in advance, it will be 98% checked at the entrance & exit.
    My recommendation for several days a 72h ticket, costs about 12 euros (2017).

    The place is named after Ferenc Deák (1803-1876), lawyer, moderate politician and minister of justice in 1848, who was involved in the so-called compensation of 1867, which made Austria and Hungary two connected states.

    The Erzsébet tér was first built outside the Vác gate of the Pest city wall, which was called Új tér, later Vásártér. From 1858 to Erzsébet Square, from 1946 to Stalin Square, from 1953 to Engels Square, from 1990 the name of Erzsébet Square again.
    This is the largest green area in the city center of Pest. The Danubius Fountain, which adorned the center of the square, was originally on Calvin Square.
    Here is also the Budapest Eye.
