  • One is on the verge and believes this building is in the time of Greco-Roman origin, it is only modern Greek. 1893 was the first plenary session here. In the years of the Nazi regime, the Parliament was not used, the Nazis ruled from Berlin. Parliament is the goddess Pallas Athena, patron saint of Athens, but also the goddess of wisdom, who believe that will, in the Interior is ruled with wisdom. Including various allegories, but particularly the tributaries of the Danube.

  • Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. A MUST if you're in Vienna. The tour is just 5 euros (less if you're a student) and full of fascinating info about the building and the Austrian political system.
  • I make a point of visiting parliamentary buildings in capitals and this one didn't disappoint. Great architecture and knowledgeable guides that are happy to answer questions. Great for history and politics buffs!
  • Absolutely amazing. First time we looked upon the building we were just in awe. The scale and decor of the building was just overwhelming. In a city blessed by centuries of Habsburg rule, the Parliament building still manages to stand out.
  • Nice building with classical neo-renessance architecture!
  • Good architecture to admire. Great view.
