Photo on right, St Stephens Basilica Dome June 17, 2013: Nikon D80 & Samyang 8mm f/2.8 (manual focus)

This is a picture of the main dome in St Stephen's basilica (Cathedral) in Budapest.

The top of the dome is 96 meters tall, which makes it the equal tallest building in Budapest with the Hungarian Parliament Building. St Stephens was completed in 1905 after 54 years of construction, which was considerably extended due to the collapse of the dome in 1868. This resulted in complete demolition of the works to date and rebuilding from the ground up.

Visitors may access the dome by elevators or by climbing 364 stairs for a 360° view overlooking Budapest.
