Based on the British House of Parliament, Hungarian Parliament Building serves as one of the city's most beautiful landmarks with its recognizable neo-Gothic architecture. This site is the center of government activity, but it is also a magnificent domed structure and one of Europe's oldest legislative houses. This building was inaugurated in 1896 on the 1,000th anniversary of Hungary. Stroll along the Danube to take in views of the structure's exterior before entering. Walk up the building's intricate staircase and through its central hall, pausing to notice details like historic sculptures, stained-glass works, ornamental mosaics, and the Holy Crown of Hungary, which has been displayed here since 2000.

  • This beautiful building by the Danube River is like something from a fairy tale. I have taken many pictures of it from every direction and with the sun up or going down. A must see for sure.

  • A visit to the mighty and one of the most beautiful buildings in Europe, where the national parliaments are housed, reveals a piece of the astonishing history of the Hungarian nation and country. An extraordinary experience that leaves you speechless in many ways. In our case, the absolutely invaluable added value of the visit was the host (in the photo): witty, perfectly prepared and generous with information. I don't think I've ever met a better (tourist) guide in my life.
  • I really recommend to book the tour, very casual and informative. You get to see the center dome with the crown and one plenary. The building is very impressive, nothing is in or on there without historical reference. If you are planning to visit in a group make sure too book a couple of days in advance; tours are available in various languages. Really recommend!
