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.

  • Amazing views and amazing building. I went past this in the day on a tour bus. But I was determined to see this lit up in the dark. It didn't disapoint. Must do when in Budapest.

  • Wonderful architecture in Europe! It is Budapest's most recognizable building. From every angle, it appeared magnificent. Stunning location with trees, gardens, and of course historical landmarks. The architecture is huge and quite detailed. Stunning view of the entire building. Although I was unable to enter, I was able to appreciate it from the outside.
  • The parliament is beautiful inside and out. It was worth visiting. I recommend you buy your tickets online. The tours are always guided with one or two people but they won't be talking as you will be listening to the headphones. Language is always optional. The guides will only be leading way and telling when to and when not to take photos. I highly recommend.
