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.

  • If you are in Budapest I highly recommend a tour of the parliament building. One can only enter via a guided tour and your best bet would be to purchase the tickets in advance online via the official ticketing portal. An evening tour enables you to experience the view of the Danube and surrounding structures while lit up.
  • Walk along the the Danube River. Enjoyed the breeze during autumn. You may also enjoyed the Buda Castle view across the river from afar. Remember to walk around the back of the Parliament building. Very amazing architecture.
