While in Budapest we visited the Basilica of St. Stephen. The church is named after Saint Stephen 1 of Hungary, the first King of Hungary (975-1038) whose embalmed right hand is a relic there. In case your wondering, no I did not see this supposedly prized possesion. The Basilica is the largest church in Budapest and has room for 8,500 worshippers. Unfortunately, we are only allowed to tour a small part inside because a wedding was being performed. It was exciting watching the bride walk down the aisle on her father’s arm but, I would have preferred to have been able to capture the beautiful high domed alter and all its beauty. Going outside we walked the grounds and behind the Basilica I captured this image of a single tree. There were no other trees on or near the property and I was fascinated by the fact they cared enough to save the tree by using lumber to support the two sections of the tree to keep it from falling over.
