Ok, I'm very impressed by old buildings anyway but this? No photo can do it justice and no description can actually describe how beautiful this building is. We visited in the afternoon, the setting sun was breathtaking against the building. We went for a coffee...More

Imposing and magnificent! Two words that describe Budapest parliament. We weren’t able to visit inside because you can only visit at specific hours when they have tours. Be sure to check this before you go!

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica
stand out as two of the finest examples of
architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention

I believe that because the Parliament is the "federal" building and legislative is always ongoing, the building is subject to closure without notice. But another couple we know did go inside the building.....even on a... More
