          Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
          stand out as two of the finest examples of

          more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
          city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
          the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
