St. Stephen's Basilica is named for the first King of Hungary. The King's mummified hand is in the basilica and is taken out during the festival of St. Stephen.

The building itself is very impressive with a beautiful dome. We noticed this large structure from some locations in Budapest such as Fisherman's Bastion and Gellert Hill.
