Parliament, Budapest

4.7
#1 of 1,535 in Things to do in Hungary
Based on the British House of Parliament, Parliament 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.

  • Beautifully kept maniacally, everything in order not to be missed, I was excited about this visit. Highly recommended. The Guide helpful and well prepared, maybe we saw too little, but being a government building in operation goes well.

  • Gorgeous architecture. I highly recommend the tour, you get a guide who is an expert on the history of the parliament but they make it interesting. Very reasonable pricing, it costs EU students around £5 for a tour.
  • Amazing view from the Danube River Cruise!!
  • Very pretty! Very beautiful and valuable design. I advise you to buy the tickets in advance by internet or first thing in the morning (8:00 hours)

  • Impressive and spectacular building on the banks of the Danube. It would be difficult to choose which is the best view of it. Visit guided and super controlled for security reasons can be in different languages, including Spanish.
