Parliament, Budapest

4.6
#1 of 1,864 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.

  • We have admired the Parliament twice, since the other side of the River to buda, c is one of the places where one has a great view, day and night

  • 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.
