My name is Csaba Tamas. I'm a travel guide and I work for Yellow Zebra and we are having this tour around the city of Budapest today in Hungary. Before we get to the next Square from the Hero Square, walking on the avenue, you can reach the St. Stephen's Basilica. This basilica, the roof where we are standing now, is one of the highest churches of the whole country, one of the biggest ones, and it was built for 60 years. This cathedral is named after St. Stephen, the first Christianized Hungarian king. So, he is really famous in our history and he was really important saving the Hungarians because they were not Christianized and the reason survived in this area because we got Christianized by St. Stephen. So, he is the father of the state and a really important figure. And he has a really nice church named after him and the beautiful square with so many places also to visit. Very close you'll find famous restaurants recently opened really good quality restaurants as you walk along the river not far from here. You'll find the Leroy, you'll find the Meo and there's some two or three other really good quality restaurants if you want to look around at the beautiful view to the basilica.
