  • The building is situated on a hill, is reached via a long straight road that runs through a large park, very nice. From there you can see the whole city. It is a destination that I recommend everyone to visit, well worth the effort.

  • The public tour was fantastic. Mickey was an excellent guide and very interactive with the whole group. The grounds are like a massive public park and very well kept. I enjoyed walking through the woods. The little one loved the playground.
  • Brilliant make sure you go on a tour. Well worth your time.
  • Impressive parliament building with surrounding Park. Offers tours and can be accessed by tourist busses.
  • Breathtaking building, inside and out. Take a guided-tour of the inside if you can; it's only about 40-45 minutes long and well worth your time.
  • It's a magnificent looking building. Did a guided tour, just turned up and didn't book it. It didn't explore much of the building as I thought it might but was informative. Shop and café are in one and are sorely undersized but staff was friendly.
