Geocache Description:

A nice spot in the middle of Budapest, comprising a statue of St. Stephen (first King of Hungary), an interesting chapel and a cross above this chapel.

It might not be obvious that there are two statues of King St. Stephen in Budapest at a distance of 2300 metres from one another. The less known of them is situated 30 metres apart from an interesting chapel built and maintained by a religious order (Paulines, OSPPE) founded in the 13th century by a Hungarian hermet.

The chapel, in fact a cave-church, consists of a semi-open outer and a closed inner part, separated by a small door. Recently a visitor centre has been built into the outer part, and – unfortunately - the inner part can be visited after paying an entrance fee only, unless you are a religious visitor and visit the chapel during the time of a Holy Mass. Nevertheless, I recommend you to visit the inner part, since it is very interesting, and for your entrance ticket you may get information on the history of the chapel . (Entrance fee: adults 500 HUF, students and seniors 400 HUF. Free entrance for children under 10.)

In the hillside, above the chapel, a huge stone cross has been erected, which is relatively easy to access on a footpath. It is worth visiting the cross, since the site offers a nice view on the neigbouring district.

To form the password, which is to be sent to my e-mail address:
1. get the first two letters of the sculptor of the statue
2. have a look at the white marble tablet on the right hand side of the entrance, count the number of letters of the first word of the third line of the table, and append this number to the name of the sculptor, and then
3. append the first four letters of the text found on a copper plate at the foot of the cross (a total of seven characters).
