It is a large building complex right next to the Danube River. It has various different langue guided tours at different time slots. However English is the most popular ones and... More

Guided tours are meant to be available, but was shut up and fenced off with ropes when I visited. Still spent 30 mins examining the multitude of carved people, animals, creatures, and that was on top of its amazing spires.... More

What a stunning building/s, and as with most places in Hungary so clean. Love the infinity stream too. However ....... who would think of putting that ugly 60's type building next door. Shame!

Great guide for a lovely tour. Well worth booking in advance for an English speaking guide. Gives access to history and sights not available otherwise.

Compare it the Scottish Parliament - you can't. The Parliament in Budapest is magnificent, vast, pristine and so impressive! A must for your photo album.
