I had the privilege of touring this breathtaking structure with some Hungarian friends. However, even if you do not have the opportunity for an inside tour, a stroll around the outside is well worth your time. Night views are perhaps even more spectacular.

We were stunned at the size and beautiful architecture of the building. The river in the background from the square makes it a wonderful setting and a great... More

A magnificent building, impressive beyond description, dominates on the Pest side of Danube, day and night. One of the most distinctive buildings in a city full of architectural gems. Its view from the hills of Buda breathtaking.
