St. Stephen's Basilica is one of the most tremendous and elegant cathedrals of Europe, its constrution started at 1848 and fnished only in 1905....
Altough i havent been inside i heard that there is a elevator that can take you to the tower of the cathedral (65 meters) and from there you can have a great 360-degree view.
You can notice the cathedral from many points of Budapest, especially from the hills of Buda. The funny thing for me was that i passed near it many times but i didnt gussed that this is the famous Basilica (there were many refurbishment works), and to me it seems somehow smaller from close view... strange...

Address: V. Szent Istvan ter.
Directions: Centre of Pest near Metro station Deak Ferenc ter (all lines)
