A United States naval officer, Rear Admiral David F. Baucom has travelled extensively throughout his military career. Among the places RADM David Baucom enjoyed most was Budapest, Hungary.

From Gellert Baths to Roman ruins, Budapest has much to offer tourists. Individuals wishing to explore ancient sites with religious value should venture to Szent Istvan Bazilika. Also known as St. Stephen’s Basilica, the historic church was named after the holy king who founded the Hungarian state. The landmark has history dating back to the 1800s and contains decorative works, like a five-part mosaic that resembles the allegories of the holy Mass. It appears in the sanctuary. In 1993, the site was dubbed a co-cathedral of the Archbishopric by Pope John Paul II.

Tourists will also enjoy the Fisherman’s Bastion. The location offers lookout towers, constructed during the 19th century, to observe panoramic views of the city and the Danube River. Open year-round, it includes a cafe to dine and a chapel that opened in 2013. Fisherman’s Bastion is one of the most visited places in Budapest.
