#1 of 1,925 in Things to do in Hungary
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.

  • Wish I had the time to take the tour but even from the outside it is a fabulous building. To take the guided tour inside you need to book at least the day before on the Internet.  more »
  • This building is so imposing on the skyline of Budapest and a must see - especially from the river at night!  more »

  • Highly recommended, beautiful building with so much history. Amazing pictures that can taken outside and inside. Highly recommend taking pictures across the Danube River at night. The largest Parliament building in Europe and the 3rd largest parliament building in the world. A brief 40 minute tour is given of the significant sites in the building to include the crown. You have to climb up 3-4 flights of stairs, to start the tour. Family friendly.
  • The Hungarian Parliament Building is a beautiful and grand building. It is built on the Danube. And as many times as I had various views of the building - from the river or driving on bridges and roads, nothing prepared me for how stunning it is lighted at night. Our Viking Cruise crew riverboat took us for a night trip to see the beautiful views. Absolutely breathtaking!
