St. Stephen's Basilica

Of all the churches we saw on the trip - and there were alot!

this was one of the most memorable! Simple, understated, gleaming in the sunlight!

The basicilia was built to honor Hungary's first Christian king. St. Stephen tamed the pagan Magyars, established strict laws, introduced the concept of private property, and made his people Christian.
The pope crowned St. Stephen in the year 1000.
