The domed neo-Gothic structre was inspired by the British House of Parliament and serves as both a vibrant government center and a proud city landmark on the banks of the Danube.

Stunning building that stands as a symbol of Hungary's defiance of occupation and - more recently - as the nationalistic heartbeat of the city. The outside of the building is just beautiful and I would recommend taking the tour. The crown of St. Stephen is there but no pictures allowed (they are serious about it, so just don't even try)....

The Parliament on the Danube surely is one of the most beautiful sights in the World. The exterior of the building is beyond compare. The interior is also quite wonderful and contains many historic treasures. We had a terrific tour of the interior with a great guide provided by the Parliament. Highly recommended.

This is a stunning building. We arrived on foot by walking on long the Danube. Lovely walk and went past the Shoes on the Danube memorial (which is also worth seeing). We didn't go into the building but walked around it and to the Square in front. This was the scene of the 1956 Kossuth Term massacre. An underground memorial... More

A great building all in all. My 19 year old son said it was the greatest building he has ever seen. Tour for non EU nationals was around $18 US for adults and half price for students. EU nationals are $2000 HUF. The tour was in English and was informative. Tours last 45 minutes which is enough time to get... More

The building is not that old, but has been carefully cleaned and renovated. It is large; very, very large. It is worth seeing from all 4 sides. There is also a display by the parliament guards at exactly 12:30 pm. 5 guards march to some recorded music on the front steps. They finish on the paved area below and allow... More

You will have to be early to get the tour in your preferred language. Very busy place but more than worth the look. We prebooked a tour with a tour operator with the only advantage a guaranteed tour at the time of your choosing as only Parlaiment guides can take you through.

The Gothic style Parliament Building of Budapest is one of the most impressive buildings I have ever seen – so grand and majestic. The limestone building is massive, yet delicate. Outside are many large statues of notable Hungarian figures. This building is comparable to the Parliament building in London and its design was inspired in part by it. However, we... More

Visited on an English speaking tour. The building is not super old, by European standards, but beautiful inside and out. The tour was very informative and interesting.

Surrounded by statues and amazing facades on three sides and the Danube on the fourth, the Parliament rises above all else. It is spectacular and comparable to any other such structure in Europe. Enjoy!!!

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
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 and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
