The foundations of the kingdom of Hungary were laid in the late 9th century, but after Stephen I ascended to the throne in 1000 and converted the kingdom to Christianity, Hungary rose in stature to a golden age in the 15th century as a middle power within the Western world. The success of Hungary's medieval kings can still be seen in its capital Budapest, as can its continued wealth under Habsburg rule, the nineteenth century bringing about an aggrandisement of Pest, most tangibly seen in the classical Hungarian State Opera House and the domineering Gothic parliament building.
