Probably, from the castle hill, you will notice this huge and magnificient building over the Danube and Chain Bridge. And then, when you cross the Chain Bridge, and reach the Roosevelt ter, you would know that it sites on the Zerinyi Utca. And it stands on the large square (Szent Istvan ter), so it attracts our eyes ;)

Szent Istvan( St. Stephan) is the first Hungarian king, who accepted the Christianity in Hungary. So, he became a saint by the Catholic church.

Inside is well decorated, but the view from the cupola is stunning.
