St. Stephen’s Basilica remains one of the tallest buildings in Budapest and one of the largest church buildings in all of Central Europe. Not for the faint of heart, but the view atop the 315 foot dome, is certainly worth all of the 364 steps, mostly spiral and stone – smoothed down over the years by tourists and locals alike. Going down was the more difficult of the two as most people were on the outside walking up, leaving only a few inches of the spiral stairs for those coming down.


This week’s #g1photofriday comes from the banks of the Danube River in Budapest, Hungary – one of many stops on our popular Danube River Cruises & New Monarch Empress – owned and operated by Gate 1 Travel.
