The elaborate exterior features several statues, tall columns, two sanctuary towers, and a magnificent dome. Step inside to see the even more ornate interior, where high ceilings lead to colorful frescoes by folk artist István Takács. If you're lucky, you'll be treated to the sounds of its dramatic organ being played. Plan your The Basilica visit and explore what else you can see and do in Eger using our Eger trip builder .

The building's size and size of the paintings are impressive. Admission is free (vault and Cryts no longer).
