Organ Concert in Saint Stephan's Basilica
The Saint Stephan's Basilica is an impressive neo-renaissance building that is situated right in the middle of downtown Budapest. It is an important religious site as it is one of the most important Catholic churches in Hungary and it's a true architectural masterpiece.

The construction started in 1851, according to the plans of Miklós Ybl, and was completed by József Kauser in 1905. In the next 50 years the church suffered from wars, storms and earthquakes. It was reconstructed 1983-2003.

From Spring to Autumn, the Basilica is home to organ concerts, performed by the renowned Hungarian organist, Miklos Teleki, accompanied by flutist Eleonora Krusic and oratorio singer Kolos Kovats.
