“Majestic building”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

I think it is the second largest parliament building in the world. Second only to the Houses of Parliament in London. Thousands of windows. The building dominates the skyline.

“Impressive”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

I didn't have the time to visit the Parliament, but from the outside it is impressive and can make other Parliament Houses look timid. The area surrounding is beautiful and bursting with life - people going to and from work, tourists and people just enjoying the area. Make sure to make a quick stop there.

Reviewed 10 June 2014

Very impressive in daytime, but really impressive when lit up at night. We did not get a chance to go inside.

“The very centre of Hungary”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Now the building works are nearly finished the experience of visiting Parliament by the guided tour is a must. The building is impressive both inside and out and the significance of St. Stephen's crown to the Hungarians is made dramatically clear.

“Breathtaking architecture, a real beauty!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

I didn't venture inside (unfortunately, time restricted) but the parliament building sits perched on the Danube and whether you observe views form Buda Hill or Fishermans Bastion or your enjoy a night time river cruise along the Danube, this building steals the limelight every time, from every angle, it is incredible!! London's parliament pales into insignificance!! SPECTACULAR!!
