Basilica of Esztergom Esztergom Basilica / Esztergomi Bazilika Basilica of Esztergom, Esztergom, Szent István tér, Hungary Esztergom Basilica is the biggest religious building in Hungary. DJI Phantom 3 footage The Castle Hill of Esztergom has always played an important part in the history of the Hungarian nation since the foundation of our state, and its significance has remained undiminished in the face of the trials and tribulations of the past centuries. This unique position stems both from the natural beauty of its picturesque situation among hills over the Danube Bend and from the buildings that elevated it now to a secular now to an ecclesiastical centre. An easily accessible yet isolated area which is easy to defend and has an air of solemnity but at the same time it is an attractive and relaxing natural setting as well. It is not surprising that the Castle Hill became first the seat of Hungary’s rulers, then the main centre of the Catholic Church of Hungary.Historical records tell us about seven churches that stood on the Castle Hill in the Middle Ages.The Saint Adalbert Cathedral, which according to written sources had been built by around 1010, lay approximately on the site of the present-day Basilica. North of it, next to the north tower of the Basilica stood the Church of Saint Stephen the Martyr. more - www.bazilika-esztergom.hu
