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.

Hungarian Parliament Building reviews
While this a spectacular building from the outside, get the guided tour for the inside. Go online about a week before you are there as the building is not always open. We loved the pride of the tour..... more

We weren’t sure if it was worth visiting but we’re really glad we did. The architecture is very impressive and full of symbols - the guide does an amazing job at bringing the history to life...

Such an amazing construction, easily one of the best and most iconic places to visit in Budapest. Must be seen both day and night.

Truly impressive building built to be representing the people of Hungary. Fascinating history and very impressive architecture. Must be seen with a tour guide but this offers a great chance to learn more about the history and past of the building. Also this is the only place where you can see the “real” crown of Hungary. No pictures allowed though. Tour takes approximately 30-45 minutes and will give you enough time to take great pictures inside. Due to the symmetry of the building you will only see one wing and the center of the building but this is definitely sufficient. After the tour you will also have access to a small museum where you can view other treasures. Probably one of the largest buildings I have ever been in. The surrounding area offers also a lot of small opportunities to explore some more
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 The building is very impressive, nothing is in or on there without historical reference.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!
The building is beautiful. It really stands out from everything. The size of it makes it marvelous in the middle of Budapest. You can do a guided tour, which I recommend if possible. And to cruise (boat, walking, cycling) along the Danube river and check the parliament during the day or the night it's worth it. It is not by mistake that it was declared to be the most beautiful parliament building in Europe.
Beautiful, wonderful, magnificent building. You don't really get to visit all the palace but you see some designated parts which are wonderful. Budapest is an exceptionally beautiful city, and its symbol is a Hungarian Parliament Building. I'm proud to have my Hungarian ancestry!
It's simply marvelous. I highly recommend the guided tour. The guide lady really knows her things and was able to explain everything to us. Also don't forget to check out the little history museum they have at the visitor center.
