The Parliament building is a must to see, it seems to shine in the sunlight, it's spotless facade is so beautiful by day and at night it is breathtaking, illuminated by spectacular lighting, if you get hot and tired there is a small cafe across the square at the side where you can sit and cool off with an ice...

My husband and I took a tour of the Parliament. It was quite a bit of walking, but worth it. Our guide was very friendly and informative. I especially loved seeing the Crown Jewels that were protected by the Americans during World War 2 and returned to Hungary by President Jimmy Carter. I hope I remember correctly...

Worth a visit even if you are not particularly interested in the history. The parliament building is beautiful inside and out, and considering the entry fee is so small, it is definitely worth taking the time to look at the stunning architecture inside.

This is a beautiful building and historically significant. Be sure to buy your tickets on-line before traveling to save time and ensure entry as space is limited and be prepared for the usual security check before entry. The tour is only 45-minutes and a quick run through the building but it is worth it.

A must see attraction of Budapest. Can't be missed from the river views but better to plan ahead and visit inside. We had limited time and arranged a full day private tour of the city. The guide was able to help us purchase tickets and skip the long lines and waiting to purchase a ticket. Limited visits in English so... More

Huge building - although the tour only goes thru a portion it does cover the focal areas and provides some great photo ops. Don't plan on showing up and catching the next tour - it's busy and we had to wait an hour and 1/2 before next available tour time.

Building looked great from the outside. Unfortunately the line up to get in was too long and the tour in english was only done twice a day, so we did not wait for the tour.

Fabulous architecture, wonderful setting, very very busy so go early or book in advance. The central feature, the domed hall, is impressive and uniquely beautiful - but all the chambers and corridors are splendid.

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.
